If you’ve been reading The Guardian, then Walter Presents’ French crime drama, The Passenger (Le Passager), sounds as though the best has been saved to the last knockings of the year. It’s set in Nice, has some ritualistic murders going on and sounds like a must-watch. I’ll be digging into it a bit later today (I have Christmas markets to go to, don’t you know), but until then, here’s what it’s all about…
This from imdb.com:
A head-strong, tough on the outside female detective in Nice works with her two colleagues to solve what appears to be a work of serial killer. The investigation leads to a partnership with psychologist who works at a mental institution nearby, and the two work, inspite of one another’s dislike for each other, to try and bring a “mythological serial killer” to justice. This is only the visible plot. This strange series of events not only gets stranger as the days go on, but closer to home for all persons involved. Why, who, and how can all of this be happening with not a shred of evidence?
Here’s a trailer with English subtitles:
