At a small provincial high school, demonic tease Alice (Natacha Régnier, The Dreamlife of Angels) enrolls her gullible young lover Luc (Jérémie Renier, The Child,Summer Hours) to kill Saïd, a classmate whom she claims raped her. Luc and Alice flee the scene of their crime and stumble through the forest to bury the body. Lost and frightened, they come across a big bad wolf, in the form of a nameless rabbit trapper (Miki Manojlovic, Underground) who catches the trespassing couple in his creepy cabin and locks them in his cellar… Les Amants Criminels is an early gem from eclectic and quirky French filmmaker François Ozon (8 Women, Swimming Pool, Time to Leave). Ozon plays with convention in this unsettling, subversive and sexually charged thriller, turning Hansel and Gretel into this adult fairytale.
