After adapting his own comics in his previous two feature films (“Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life,” “The Rabbi’s Cat”), filmmaker Joann Sfar turns to Sébastien Japrisot’s noir-thriller “The Lady in the Car With Glasses and a Gun” for his latest outing. The novel was previously adapted into a 1970 film directed by Anatole Litvak, though Sfar has a style far more sexy and thrilling up his sleeve.
“The Lady in the Car With Glasses and a Gun” centers on Dany Doremus (Mavor) as she drives her boss’ 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, which the clip above teases in full.
The film hits theaters and On Demand today, December 18. It will also be available to stream on Amazon Video and iTunes.
