Le Pacte du Silence

"Grim"

Le Pacte du Silence Review


Psychological thrillers about twins are weird enough -- now we have to have it in French? This flashback-infested, circular, and borderline-nonsensical set piece gives us Gérard Depardieu as a priest and a doctor and Élodie Bouchez as a crazy girl and a nun... only Depardieu's doctor/priest is one person, not two, like Bouchez. Taking trips that venture all the way from voodoo country to the inner workings of the Catholic church, this silly thriller's payoff is so tepid that it hardly makes the frustrating journey there worth it. Skip.

Aka The Pact of Silence.
