Summary

Jenny, a young doctor who feels guilty after a young woman she refused to see winds up dead a few days later, decides to find out who the girl was, after the police can’t identify her.

The Unknown Girl | 2016 | Luc Dardenne, Jean-Pierre Dardenne | Belgium / France | 15 | 107 mins | French language

Renowned Belgian directors Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne (Two Days, One Night) continue their empathetic examinations of the compromises faced by everyday people in their psychologically complex new drama The Unknown Girl. Rising French actor Adèle Haenel (Water Lilies) stars as Jenny Davin, a talented doctor who refuses to open the door of her practice to a mysterious late-night caller.

The next morning, she learns that the caller was a girl who has been found dead, and that the police have no way of identifying her. Shocked and guilt-stricken by the news, Jenny resolves to discover the name of the young girl so that she will not be buried anonymously – to ensure she doesn’t disappear as if she had never lived.

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.

Nominated for the Palme d’Or at Cannes. This film is shown in French with English subtitles.

“Part of the Dardennes’ rarity as storytellers is their capacity to recognise not only basic moral character and social circumstances but also mood as pivotal in how things pan out for people.” Hannah McGill, Sight and Sound
