  Antoine Barraud

Synopsis

In this intricately plotted thriller, the dynamic and alluring Judith (Virginie Efira)—or Margot or Madeleine, depending on who’s asking—leads a secret double life. In a modest home in Geneva, she and Abdel (Quim Gutiérrez) are quietly raising a young daughter. Meanwhile, in Paris, Judith enjoys a glamorous, high-profile life with Melvil (Bruno Salomone), a sought-after orchestra conductor, and their two boys. But how has she arrived at this untenable living situation and how much longer until the house of cards comes crashing down around her? Dripping in suspense and brimming with emotion, the mystery of Madeleine Collins, the woman and her story, breathlessly unfolds as it races to an unexpected conclusion.
