38 Witnesses

99 minutes

The 1964 murder of Kitty Genovese—who was stabbed to death outside her Brooklyn apartment building as her neighbors supposedly stood by—inspired this French drama by writer-director Lucas Belvaux (Rapt), about a childless, middle-aged couple (Yvan Attal, Sophie Quinton) who overhear a similar crime. The movie contains almost no subtext: characters constantly explain how they feel and what they think the incident implies about their community. To further underscore the obvious, Belvaux affects the same dour, defeatist tone for every scene. Also known as One Night. In French with subtitles.
