The Woman With Red Hair - 2016 - 6/10
AKA - La Femme aux Cheveux Rouges

Early on, a woman with red hair is pursued, then, what appears to be, drowned.
This, as it transpires, is a flashback (not handled particularly well).
The story shifts to a war journalist, staying in this small village, recovering from trauma.
Plus, the red-headed daughter of the deceased. (Note: Mother and daughter use vivid hair coloring.)
Unlike most French mysteries, the hunt for this decade old mystery is by these two, not detectives.
A point for that, a point for good use of indoor and outdoor scenery.
As for chemistry between the two sleuths? Negative.
