Directed by François Ozon (France, 2023, 102 min.). French with English subtitles.

Set in the 1930s, this charming comedy follows struggling actress Madeleine (Nadia Terezkiewicz) and her best friend Pauline (Rebecca Marder), an unemployed lawyer, who live in a cramped flat and owe five months’ rent. Opportunity knocks when a sleazy theater producer who made an unwanted advance towards Madeleine turns up dead. On trial for murder, Madeleine ascends to instant stardom, with Pauline serving as defense counsel and media circus ringmaster. A new life of fame, wealth, and tabloid celebrity awaits—until the truth about the murder shows up in the form of a vamping Isabelle Huppert. The Crime Is Mine is a rollicking farce with a wily feminist edge from one of French cinema’s most chameleonic stylists.

“The epitome of a comfort film, decked out in old-Hollywood nostalgia and unfolding at an auctioneer’s clip. Its fun and games are deceptively smart—all the more because the women know their angles so triumphantly well.” —New York Times
