Only the Animals at Cinema Art Theater
November 5, 2021
An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until November 11, 2021
Only the Animals, a riveting mystery drama that is told from the points of view of five principal characters.
Following the disappearance of glamourous housewife Evelyne Ducat (Valeria Bruni Tedeschi), the lives of five people inextricably linked to her are brought together to devastating effect as the local police investigate the case. Elegantly structured and darkly funny, this audacious thriller reveals the secret connections of a lonely farmer, an unfaithful husband and wife, a lovelorn waitress, and an African con artist to expose a world of greed, lust, betrayal, desperation, and murder spanning the wintry French highlands to the sun-kissed streets of Sierra Leone. With an outstanding cast, including an astonishing performance by Denis Menochet (Inglorious Basterds), Only The Animals finds director Dominik Moll at the height of his filmmaking powers as he masterfully exposes the secret connections that lie at the heart of this mystery. Winner of Best International Film at the 2021 Munich Film Festival. [2019, France/Germany, 116 min, Rated: NR, in French with English subtitles]
Avi Offer of NYC Movie Guru writes, “A spellbinding, intelligent and emotionally engrossing crime thriller with Hitchcockian suspense.” Peter Bradshaw of the Guardian says, “The film’s constituent parts… interlock like the workings of an intricate and malign musical box, creating dashes of melodrama, erotic obsession and even soap opera, and all superbly performed.”
