The Apparition

Dir. Xavier Giannoli. France, 2018. 2h 24m. French/subs. Starring Vincent Lindon, Galatéa Bellugi, Patrick d'Assumçao, Anatole Taubman, Elina Löwensohn, Claude Lévèque.

The Vatican sends a journalist to a small French village to investigate a woman's claim that she saw an apparition of the Virgin Mary. An intriguing and well-constructed mystery starring Cannes Best Actor winner Vincent Lindon (The Measure of a Man).

'At its best, The Apparition has the tingling, drawn-out, truth-game suspense of a Costa-Gavras movie.' ★★★★ Nigel Andrews, The FT

'Giannolli’s serious, slow-burn drama is at its best when keeping slithers of key information just out of sight' David Jenkin, Little White Lies
