Movie Info

A young sound engineer whose mother has recently been murdered uses her expertise in audio to launch her own investigation into the case, only to find that the sounds of the past could prove key to solving a mystery of the present in director Alanté Kavaïté's poetic thriller. Charlotte's mother has been mysteriously murdered, but the grieving daughter isn't about to let the investigations stall due to the simple incompetence of the local police force. When Charlotte travels back to the house that her mother lived in at the time of the murder and makes an audio recording that seems to be of supernatural origins, the surreal events that follow lead the once-skeptical girl down a darkened path that threatens to consume her own soul with each new terrifying revelation.

Critic Reviews for Fissures (Écoute le temps)

All Critics (12)

It doesn't take long for the sheer invention of the filmmaking to seep through the sludgy illusion, making for a perceptive, engaging thriller.

Assembled with insinuating skill by Kavaite into a gripping, involving, beautifully unfolding mystery.

August 17, 2007 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Kavaite's film is well made and acted but less than credible.

August 17, 2007 | Rating: 2/5

Having set up its line of murder suspects the film sheers off into supernatural hokum and never really recovers.

August 17, 2007 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

There are shades of the excellent Brian De Palma/John Travolta thriller Blow Out (1981) in this eerie little effort.

Here is the French countryside at its most sinister: sideways glances from hostile natives, inbred yokels, disappearing children, corrupt politicians . . .
