French Cinema • Drama, Thriller
Overwhelmed with grief and desperate for answers, Diane Kramer (Emmanuelle Devos) travels to Evian in search of the mocha-colored Mercedes that she believes killed her son in a hit-and-run accident. There, she tracks down Marlene (Nathalie Baye), a beauty salon proprietor and owner of the vehicle. In order to get closer to her, Diane pretends to be a potential buyer for the car, but the path of revenge is more tortuous and complicated than it seems. Adapted from Tatiana de Rosnay's bestselling novel, MOKA is a moody, riveting psychological thriller, which is "a first-rate showcase for two of French cinema's finest actors" (The New York Times).
