A project taken over from Maurice Pialat, Messidor has as its basis a true story which was a sensation of 1970s France: a crime spree by two young girls and its terminal conclusion. Keenly interested as ever in drop-outs and exiles, Tanner tracks the flight of the fierce female fugitives through an Alpine Switzerland which has here taken on a heavy, sinister air.
