Ciné IFV: “La Prochaine Fois Je Viserai le Coeur”.
You are invited to the film screening “La Prochaine Fois Je Viserai le Coeur”, a thriller film based on a true story, starring French actor Guillaume Canet.
Film synopsis: For several months, between 1978 and 1979, the inhabitants of the Oise in France live in a state of terror and anxiety: a maniac is on the prowl, and young women are his prey. After trying to run over several women with his car, he finally manages to injure and kill female hitch-hikers he picks up at random.
The man is everywhere and nowhere, eluding the traps set up by investigators and avoiding roadblocks. He’s so good at escaping because he is in fact a timid, young cop who lives an ordinary life and doesn’t stand out amongst his squad. As a model cop, he is responsible for investigating his own crimes until the maps of his murderous journey slip from his grasp.
