En 1976, après avoir obtenu le divorce et séjourné en Afrique, Agnès Le Roux rentre à Nice, où elle retrouve sa mère Renée, propriétaire du casino Le Palais de la Méditerranée. Elle-même actionnaire de l'établissement, la jeune femme tombe rapidement sous le charme de Maurice Agnelet, avocat volage et homme de confiance de sa mère. Mais les intentions de ce dernier sont loin d'être pures. Par ses manoeuvres, il va en effet faire entrer en contact Agnès avec Fratoni, patron d'un casino concurrent qui va lui offrir trois millions de francs pour qu'elle fasse perdre la direction du Palais à sa mère. Mais après sa trahison, Agnès, rongée par le remords et délaissée par Maurice, fait une tentative de suicide. Puis, à la Toussaint 1977, elle disparaît sans laisser de traces. Des années plus tard, Renée se bat toujours pour que la culpabilité de Maurice dans la disparition de sa fille soit reconnue. [(c) Médiafilm] [SDM]

Recommended. Since it is based on a true story, one has to put up with some of the twists and turns which don't follow copy book style script writing. The acting by Adel Haenel is captivating, although the others including Catherine Deneuve, are less than memorable.

Agnès Le Roux, a young independent woman, returns to Nice in 1976 to have a new start in her life after a failed marriage. All while falling in love with an older lawyer.

It may help to know that this film is based on an endless French judicial affair that dates back to the 1970s and whose latest development (denial of yet another appeal) came in July of this year! Thus this complex story is familiar to the French, who are the movie's primary audience. The film thankfully simplifies the twists and turns of the story by concentrating on the triangular relationship at the origin of the affair, not on the subsequent saga in the courts (though there is one courtroom scene that will leave you wondering about rules of evidence in the French judicial system). The acting is good all around, but Guillaume Canet stands out as 'the man who was loved too much'. Adèle Haenel has the hardest role as the emotionally fragile gal who can't let him go. Worth seeing even though many may feel unsatisfied with the voice-over ending.
