Murder in Pacot

130 minutes 2014

New
A wealthy neighborhood in Port-au-Prince is nearly destroyed by the Haitian earthquake of 2010 in this smart, unconventional drama (2015) by Raoul Peck (Lumumba). After the quake, an affluent couple wait for word of their missing son; needing to pay for repairs to their ruined three-story home, they move into the servants' quarters and sublease the rest of the house to an aid worker, who then becomes embroiled in local class warfare. The father, played by French actor Alex Descas, anchors the story with a cool, understated performance, and though the pace is leisurely, Peck jams so much detail into every frame and so much subtext into every conversation that even the slowest scenes are captivating.
