Psychological Thriller ‘Desordres’ Gets A Release Date (Isaach De Bankolé, Sonia Rolland Star)

Psychological Thriller 'Desordres' Gets A Release Date (Isaach De Bankolé, Sonia Rolland Star)

A film we’ve been tracking for over a year now will finally be making its theatrical debut – but, only in France for right now! So our readers in France can count themselves lucky.

The psychological thriller is titled Désordres (Chaos), and it stars Isaach De Bankolé and French-Rwandan actress Sonia Rolland, as history professor Vincent and his wife Marie, who have just moved from Paris (with their son) to a farm near a small town in the south of France, looking forward to a quieter life. Marie, a retired renowned international pianist unwillingly follows her husband. However, their hopes for a serene escape is disrupted from the very beginning, when Thibaut, one of Vincent’s students (played by Niels Schneider), invades their family getaway, and slowly, but surely, the couple starts to come apart.

The film is directed by Étienne Faure.

It screened for buyers at the Cannes film market last May, although no word on what other territories exactly it can be expected to be available.

The film will open on April 17th in France.

I hope it heads west to the USA! Maybe a local film festival will pick it up.

Here’s the film’s moody new release trailer:

The French are so lucky, and I am so envious right now. ;-)

Unfortunately, French dvds often do not come with any subtitles at all. It really is a shame – and pretty daft, they could sell so much more.

Feels like a French remake of Sam Peckinpah's STRAW DOGS (1972).

This right here is what we need more if, not another bio-pic about some figure from the past. It's time to get creative, family.


Moody is the operative word. Love Isaach De Bankolé. Very underused and underrated. Will see it.
