A detailed and thoroughly engrossing police procedural that is based on a real life case, The Night Of The 12th was a huge hit in its native France last year, and caused pointed debate in French society around institutional misogyny in the police force. It shows the ripple effect of a senseless killing of a young woman in a small mountain community, and follows police officer Yohan as the case slowly takes him over. Like the similarly haunting Zodiac, this film never resolves the central case but provides plenty of suspects, and the viewer becomes as obsessed as Yohan with the ambiguity that surrounds the murder.
