Nominated for the 2016 Palme d'Or.
Rising French actor Adèle Haenel ('120 BPM: Beats Per Minute', 'Les Combattants') stars as Jenny Davin, a talented doctor who refuses to open the door of her practice to a mysterious late-night caller. The next day, the police inform her that an unidentified young woman has been found dead close by.
Playing intelligently with the traits of traditional detective dramas, 'The Unknown Girl' is another characteristically engaging social commentary from the two-time Palme d’Or winning Dardenne brothers - and a morally astute and compelling investigation of personal responsibility, justice and compassion.
★★★★ "The Dardenne brothers deliver a perceptive portrait of professional integrity under pressure" - Simon Kinnear, Total Film
★★★★★ "Another quietly powerful masterpiece" - Saskia Baron, The Arts Desk
