Set to Wendy Rene’s 1960 song “After Laughter (Comes Tears),” the new trailer features Freya Mavor, playing a gorgeous secretary, driving around in a stolen car, but things go from stylish and sexy to brutally dark and thrilling in this French-Belgian production.
“The Lady in the Car With Glasses and a Gun” centers on Dany Doremus (Mavor) as she drives her boss’s car to a town where everyone seems to know her, although she claims she’s never been in the town before. Matters become worse when she discovers a body in her trunk. The trailer is a stunning peek at the noir thriller, which looks to be both stylish and gritty.
Director Joann Sfar returns to the screen with his third film and third adaptation; his two previous films “Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life” and “The Rabbi’s Cat” were based on his own comics. Sfar takes a dabble at another adaptation from the book by Sebastien Japrisot, which was originally adapted in the 1970s with Anatole Litvak as director.
The film is being released in theaters and Itunes on December 18 by Magnolia Pictures.
