Watch: Sexy Trailer for Amalric's 'The Blue Room'

Based on Belgian author Georges Simenon’s 1964 mystery novel, this neo-noir follows a man (Amalric) and a woman (Stephanie Cleau) as they meet for anonymous trysts in a hotel. But this once-innocent relationship will unravel into a police investigation where Amalric’s character is accused of a crime he can’t identify.

Stephanie Cleau and Amalric cowrote the adaptation. While Amalric is perhaps best known as an actor in films "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly" and Polanski two-hander "Venus in Fur," this is his 15th film as a director.

Sundance Selects opens the film on October 3. Cannes review here.
