The Crime Is Mine (Mon crime)

Five Funny French Films

After a struggling actress stands trial for the murder of a lascivious producer in 1930s Paris, she ascends to scandalous stardom. A new life of fame, wealth, and tabloid celebrity awaits—until the truth comes out. Isabelle Huppert appears as a fading silent-film star in François Ozon’s frothy story of murder, romance, blackmail, girl power, and a bit of French film history. As Paste observes, “the costumes by frequent Ozon collaborator Pascaline Chavanne are all divine, with not a wig out of place. The Crime Is Mine has layers of textbook farce decorated with a confectioner’s critique.”

Generous support has been provided by Franci Neely, Melanie Gray and Mark Wawro, Nina and Michael Zilkha, and Joanie Patrick and Stephen Bettencourt.
