This film from prolific French director Robert Guediguian is an unpredictable, thoughtprovoking and engaging dramatic thriller. No relation to the Hemingway novel, The Snows of
Kilimanjaro tells the story of Michel who lives happily with his wife of more than thirty years, surrounded by family and friends. But their idyllic life is shattered when two masked men break into their home and brutally hold them up. When Michel learns that the crime was organised by a former colleague who is struggling to look after two abandoned children, the shocking event becomes even more disturbing.
