The Woman in the Fifth

Drama Thriller


 

American writer Tom Ricks comes to Paris desperate to put his life together again and win back the love of his estranged wife and daughter.

The actor's performances are very good, the cinematography is considered, and dramatic tension is maintained throughout. Audiences will still wonder what happened when the plot is unfolded and will want to decipher what looks like an allegorical representation of the psyche of a writer. This movie will instigate discussions to determine how to explain the outcome. There are no tidy conclusions, and the story will linger beyond first viewing and into the fifth.
