Child's Play

A Feature film by Laurent Tuel

Produced by Fidélité Films

Release in France : 20/06/2001

    Synopsis

    Marianne, Jacques and their two children, Julien and Aube: an unremarkable middle-class family living happily in a wealthy district of Paris. Following the appearance of an elderly brother and sister strangely anxious to revisit their beloved childhood home, their peaceful existence is turned on end, then torn savagely apart by a sequence of terrifying and inexplicable events. While Julien and Aube play their increasingly sinister games, unnaturally oblivious to the gathering madness around them, Marianne and Jacques are cast headlong into a nightmare which reveals the dark secrets behind the bland façade of their lives and threatens to destroy them. And as her husband becomes a stranger, slipping ever deeper into insanity, as she realises with ever-growing horror that her children are posessed by a malign force of terrifying power, Marianne is left to confront the evil alone.
    Laurent Tuel's second feature is a supernatural psychological nerve shredder, a shattering depiction of the anguish and terror of a woman cast sideways into living Hell... A "Repulsion" for 2001.
