Synopsis
From Francois Ozon comes this nasty tale of Alice and Luc, two young teenage lovers with a lust for murder, who decide to kill their narcissistic but beautiful classmate Said and take his body deep into the forest. In the forest, the murderous duo face something more terrifying than their most devious acts. A merging of crime noir and fairy-tale, this is an erotic and dangerous thriller from the French master.
