Program Notes

To find the driver of the vintage mocha-colored Mercedes which she thinks hit her son and devastated her life, Diane Kramer (Emmanuelle Devos) embarks on a trip to take revenge. She goes to Évian, where she has learned the driver of the Mercedes lives, but she now has to face another woman, Marlene (Nathalie Baye) – a beauty salon proprietor and owner of the car. In order to get closer to her, Diane pretends to be a potential buyer for the car, but the path of revenge is more tortuous and complicated than it seems. Adapted from Tatiana de Rosnay’s 2006 novel, MOKA is a moody, riveting psychological thriller, showcasing the tremendous talents of two of France’s best actresses.
 
“The film is a surprising and ever-so-slightly twisted thriller that broaches the complex subject of revenge.” – Muriel del Don, Cineuropa
 
“A mother’s haunting grief propels her on an obsessive quest for answers and possible revenge in MOKA, a mournful, slow-burning psychological thriller adapted from the 2006 novel by Tatiana de Rosnay.” – Allan Hunter, Screen Daily
 
“The reliably interesting Emmanuelle Devos brings complexity to this sleek, Chabrol-like story of a mother’s revenge mission…The title of MOKA, an elegantly lean, low-temperature thriller from Swiss writer-director Frédéric Mermoud, turns out to be less enigmatic than it sounds.” – Guy Lodge, Variety
 
“Emmanuelle Devos and Nathalie Baye headline this Patricia Highsmith-like thriller about a mother who lost her son in a car accident and wants to take revenge on the stranger that caused it…A classy and classical psychological thriller.”
– Boyd Van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter
