Tribute to Jean-Pierre Bacri

Avant l'aube

In French with English subtitles

dir. Raphaël Jacoulot with Jean-Pierre Bacri, Vincent Rottiers, Ludmila Mikael, Sylvie Testud

Recently paroled, Frédéric works nights at an upscale hotel in the Pyrenees mountains. One night, he spots the hotel owner, Jacques Couvreur (Bacri) and his son concealing a damaged vehicle. When the police investigate the death of a hotel guest, Frédéric covers for his boss, who rewards him by promoting him and taking him under his wing. He is moved by Jacques’ paternal attitude and fascinated by his family and lifestyle… until he realises he is being set up to take the blame for their crimes.
