Moka - 2016 - 7/10
Early on, mother flees (escapes) from the clinic where she had been under observation.
She suffers profound grief following the death of her son by a hit and run driver.
Remorse is not on her mind, however, retribution is.
Through a hired private detective, she “thinks” she has found the driver.
Her mind is made up, though for viewers the quarry is less clear.
A great deal of tension in this tale of grim resolve vs unsubstantiated assumptions.
Emmanuelle Devos excellent as the parent turned hunter.
In many ways a remake of 1969’s Que la Bete Meure with less moral clarity.
