ComingSoon is debuting the exclusive poster for the upcoming crime drama Only the Animals, based on the novel Seules les bêtes by Colin Niel, and arriving in select theaters on October 29. You can check out the poster below!
“Following the disappearance of the glamorous and secretive Evelyne Ducat (Valeria Bruni Tedeschi) during a blizzard in the highlands of southern France, the lives of five people inextricably linked to Evelyne are brought together to devastating effect as the local police investigate the case,” reads the official synopsis. “Divided into five chapters, writer-director Dominik Moll’s murder mystery features a sophisticated multi-pronged narrative structure that keeps viewers on the edge. Switching viewpoints, it gradually reveals the secret connections between a lonely farmer, an unfaithful husband and wife, a lovelorn waitress and an African internet scam artist, exposing a world of greed, lust, betrayal, and loneliness, from isolated French mountain villages to the bustling streets of Abidjan.”
Directed by Dominik Moll (Eden, News From Planet Mars, Lemming) who adapted the screenplay along with Gilles Marchand, the movie stars Denis Ménochet, Valeria Bruni Tedeschi, Laure Calamy, Damien Bonnard, Nadia Tereszkiewicz, Bastien Bouillon, Guy Roger ‘Bibisse’ N’Drin, and Marie Amie.
Only the Animals is produced by Caroline Benjo, Carole Scotta, Barbara Letellier, and Simon Arnal. The film is produced by Haut et Court in co-production with Razor Film Produktion (Germany) and France 3 Cinéma (France).
