La Sentinelle Film Poster


Director Arnaud Desplechin’s (Kings and Queen) unconventional spy film is centered on the dissolution of Europe after the fall of Communism. After the death of his diplomat father in Germany, Mathias decides to move to Paris to study forensic medicine. On the train to the city, he is arrested and threatened by a mysterious agent, and the next day Mathias discovers a severed head has been stashed in his luggage. Using his medical knowledge to trace the history of the strange appendage, Mathias begins to get deeper and deeper in obscure international intrigue and is soon out of his depth.
