Movie Info

A whirlwind romance threatens to yield tragic repercussions in this drama from director Guillaume Brac (Un monde sams femmes). Determined to escape the noise of the city and write some new songs, Paris-based rock star Maxime (Vincent Macaigne) flees to his widowed father's house in Tonnerre. There, an interview session with pretty local reporter Melodie (Solene Rigot) leads to a brief fling that turns ugly when Melodie departs for a three day trip, and fails to return on schedule. Convinced when Melodie stops returning his calls that she's fallen back into the arms of her athletic ex-boyfriend, jealous Maxime steals a gun, and viciously abducts her.


Critic Reviews for Tonnerre

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

A career-stalled rock musician, leaving Paris for his small hometown of Tonnerre, falls in love and falls apart in Guillaume Brac's engrossingly nuanced character study.

June 4, 2015 | Full Review…

This low-key effort is somewhat tonally inconsistent, yet its strong performances and naturalistic setting make for an intriguing New Wave-ish dramedy that deserves a look.

June 4, 2015 | Full Review…

This low-key psychodrama is light on narrative development but rich in observations of character

June 4, 2015 | Full Review…

Neither the characters nor the plot are sufficiently substantial to carry the film and the actors seem uncertain about their roles and what is expected of them.

June 4, 2015 | Full Review…

A spunky and sad story of the toll of obsessive love on a musician.

June 23, 2014 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

It leaves an impression of the sweet and menacing in equal measure. (And you might think of Taxi Driver.)
