Directed by Antoine Barraud (France, 2021, 112 min.). French with English subtitles.
How does a glamorous businesswoman find herself living two separate lives, in two separate countries, with two completely different families who know nothing about each other? This is the tantalizing mystery of Antoine Barraud’s Madeleine Collins, a psychological thriller with the eminently watchable Virginie Efira (César Award winner for Best Actress, Bendetta) at its center. Efira’s Judith lives a double life, bouncing between France, where she works as a professional translator and cares for two sons with her husband, a renowned orchestra director (Bruno Salomone); and Switzerland, where she lives in a humble flat with Abdel (Quim Gutiérrez) and their young daughter. But how has she found herself in this position? How long can she keep up this charade? And who is Madeleine Collins?
“Elegantly handled and suspenseful in the manner of a Hitchcock or an Ozon.... As enjoyable as a classy airport page-turner, Madeleine Collins is elevated by Efira’s committed performance.” —Screen Daily
