MOKA

Sept 1-16     Single Tickets $5     Summer Passes $30     Where Are Films Shown?     Where Can I Park?     WATCH THE TRAILER

Shades of Patricia Highsmith and Claude Chabrol infuse this thinking person’s thriller set on the picturesque French/Swiss border starring two of France’s most celebrated actresses.

A woman searches for vintage mocha-colored Mercedes which she thinks struck her teenaged son and devastated her life. Diane Kramer (Emmanuelle Devos) embarks on a trip to find the driver. She goes to Evian, a village along the shores of Lake Geneva (and the bottled-water capital of the world) and meets the owner of the Mercedes, Marlene, who is as charming and friendly as she is dangerous and ambiguous. Moka explores the inner lives of these two women, both in their own ways living in shadowy moral territory.

France / 89 minutes / WATCH THE TRAILER

If Hollywood ever does a remake of “Moka,” it will be much different from the French original. You could rightly call it a thriller, but a slow-burning one, and a film that’s driven by character, not plot points. And that won’t do in Tinseltown. So enjoy the original, preferably in a theater, and revel in the rich, layered performances of veteran actresses Emmanuelle Devos and Nathalie Baye (men are incidental in this movie, another Hollywood no-no).
