In the Electric Mist (2009)

Directed by
Bertrand Tavernier

eteran actor Tommy Lee Jones meets France's most revered auteur, Bertrand Tavernier, in this superior psychological thriller set in the eerie backwaters of Louisiana. The director's recent US work features a stellar ensemble including John Goodman, Kelly Macdonald and Peter Sarsgaard (An Education). Tommy Lee Jones takes the lead as disillusioned detective Robicheaux, who navigates his way across Louisiana to solve the murky murder case of a young woman.

Adapted from James Lee Burke's bestselling novel, In the Electric Mist with Confederate Dead, the film has all the ingredients of a tense thriller and is a beautiful portrait of post-hurricane New Orleans. Tavernier who is renowned for infusing social messages in his work, uses the film to question race-relations in America.

Cinémoi will premiere the director's cut of the film as released in France, but never previously released in the U.S. or UK. A trimmed-down version (102minutes), cut by the studio, was released direct-to-DVD in the United States.
