Gloria and Michel, criminals besotted with each other, turn murderous in this psychotic French thriller. Starring Lola Dueñas and Laurent Lucas.
Desperate mother Gloria (Lola Dueñas) has just escaped her manipulative husband and started a new life with her two children.
Sworn off men but convinced to try a dating website, Gloria agrees to meet with Michel (Laurent Lucas). The couple feel an instant spark, and despite Michel’s criminal lifestyle, Gloria feels so strongly that she abandons her children and runs away with him.
United by a morbid pact, the duo are happy until Michel’s seduction of a wealthy widow, Madeline (Stéphane Bissot), drives Gloria to murder.
This French thriller from director Fabrice Du Welz, based on a true story, follows Gloria and Michel down an increasingly dark and violent road.
