Synopsis

Jenny, a talented doctor, 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 the police have no way of identifying her. Shocked and guilt-stricken by the news, Jenny resolves to discover the name of the girl so she will not be buried anonymously and to ensure she doesn’t disappear as if she had never lived.

“Sharp as a thriller. The best Dardenne’s film since The Child”

“Masterful… a deft, meticulous morale drama.”

Film Directors

The Dardenne Brothers

“Moral issues are always individual and we are compelled by things that are very personal,” said Luc  Dardenne.
Audiences of course can read the film as a story that analyzes society.”

“There is no link to when we shot the film or wrote it,” said Luc Dardenne, underscoring that he and his brother avoid making
concrete statements in their movies. “We try to film the flow of life without setting it in stone.”
