Movie Info

To find the driver of the vintage mocha-colored Mercedes which she thinks hit her son and devastated her life, Diane Kramer (Emmanuelle Devos) embarks on a trip to take revenge. She goes to Évian, where she has learned the driver of the Mercedes lives, but she now has to face another woman, Marlene (Nathalie Baye) - a beauty salon proprietor and owner of the car. In order to get closer to her, Diane pretends to be a potential buyer for the car, but the path of revenge is more tortuous and complicated than it seems. Adapted from Tatiana de Rosnay's 2006 novel, MOKA is a moody, riveting psychological thriller, showcasing the tremendous talents of two of France's best actresses.

  • Around the 77-minute mark, the film appears to reach its logical conclusion, and then proceeds to hit the audience with another satisfying 10 minutes of twists. The real delight comes in watching Baye play mouse to Devos' cat.

  • "Moka" is a stark, moody mystery that doesn't actually contain much mystery. Instead, it excels as a character study and a dynamic face-off between two formidable actresses: Emmanuelle Devos and Nathalie Baye.

    Jul 6, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • You could rightly call it a thriller, but a slow-burning one, and a film that's driven by character, not plot points.

    Jun 28, 2017 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • A tense psychological thriller whose twisty plot benefits from a bravura performance by Emmanuelle Devos.

  • The premise is hardly fresh, but screenwriters Antonin Martin-Hilbert and Frédéric Mermoud tease it out so gradually that you may find yourself hooked anyway.

    Jun 22, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Director Frederic Mermoud, working from a script based on a novel by Tatiana de Rosnay, mixes slow-burn tension with devastating emotion.
