La fille inconnue
La fille inconnue
Jenny Davin is a hard-working and seemingly very proficient young Belgian doctor who is soon to leave the clinic in Liège for a new job at a larger practice. After an exhausting day, we see her with a young intern, Julien, who is proving to be less than useful. During a fraught moment they hear a knock at the clinic's door, and Jenny tells Julien to ignore it.

The following day Jenny is visited by the police, who inform her that the young woman at the door had been killed. Distraught, Jenny sets about finding out who the woman was, not an easy task as it turns out. She also decides not to take up her new job, but continue at the clinic, perhaps by way of penance.

Her pursuance of the young woman's name leads her into difficult situations, at times downright dangerous, and reveals that one of her patients may have known the woman. Meanwhile, the police caution her stay clear of a couple of unsavoury characters who had threatened her after she had asked questions about the woman's identity.

This film is realistic to the point of seeming like a documentary at times. Adèle Haenel, who plays Jenny, is very convincing as the young doctor. I had seen her previously in Suzanne and Après le sud, both portraying equally realistic life dramas.
