I was surprised how much I enjoyed this supernatural crime thriller, given that ghost stories are not usually my thing. The unearthly presence of the murder victim at first barely noticeable grows steadily thoughout the film, gradually taking lonely heroine Charlotte (played very adeptly by Emilie Dequenne) closer to the brink of madness.
Not a classic horror by any means, this story is played with chilling realism, as the daughter's determination to solve the mystery of her mother's death becomes obsession.
As with any good crime thriller, just about any of the characters could have `done it' (except in this case, the police, although there may be something not quite right about them, too). The tension spirals up, ever tighter, as the ghost becomes more active and the number of suspects multiplies.
A very effective drama, well acted and ably directed, all the better for a lack of sophistication or special effects. A gripping yarn!
