F’13 AP French murder mystery movie

For their final project, the Fall ’13 AP French class filmed a murder mystery entirely in French! (Don’t worry, there are subtitles). Rated PG for intrigue, hints of violence, painfully beautiful scenery, and a lot of gratuitous dancing.

Starring: Isabella (the daughter), Hannah (the police chief), A.J. (the inspector), Maggie (the farmer) & Kareen (the dancer) with cameos by Ethan, Praz, Ryan and a dancing flash mob.

Rotten tomatoes score: 89%

Critics’ reviews:

Highly suspenseful plot that ends in a dancing montage. I haven’t enjoyed a movie this much since Slumdog Millionaire.”

“Should be in the running for best foreign film of the year. Can’t believe those kids aren’t native French speakers. Their accents are impeccable!”

“Kareen definitely has an Academy Award nomination coming her way with that performance.”

“Lead actors are strong, and the supporting cast is hilarious. Should have given Praz a bigger part!”
