Only the Animals

Directed by Dominik Moll
Year: 2019
Country: France
Language: French with English subtitles

Award-winning director Dominik Moll (With A Friend Like Harry) returns with another thriller exploring our darker desires. Two depressed farmers, an unfaithful wife, a lovelorn waitress and an African con artist are drawn together in a mystery surrounding the disappearance of Valeria Bruni Tedeschi’s glamourous Evelyne Ducat. The action switches between international locations as the links between the characters are gradually revealed. Stylishly shot and elegantly structured, ONLY THE ANIMALS finds Moll at the height of his storytelling powers and working with an excellent cast, whose characters’ motivations call into question the contrast between our public and private lives.
