Our review :

In Inexorable, Fabrice Du Welz tells us a horrible story in a magnificent setting: that of a castle surrounded by trees. Against the background of Unless you are the LordVivaldi’s cantata.

The peaceful life of the couple formed Benoit Poelvoorde and Melanie Douteyauthor and publisher, will be shattered with the arrival of the character of Gloria, remarkably interpreted by Alba Gaia Bellugi. Shy, withdrawn at first sight, she seems to be formidable behind this facade. And his arrival in the family is associated with a strange atmosphere which is gradually established, distilled by the director. His presence makes Marcel (Benoit Poelvoorde), the writer, more and more nervous. It is difficult to understand what she wants, to the point of wondering if she is not an erotomaniac. In any case, it will sow chaos. The wolf entered the sheepfold.

Inexorable takes a while to start: Fabrice Du Welz installs his story for a long time, he voluntarily takes his time, with a certain pleasure, before the aspect Thriller in French finally take over the movie. The tension increases crescendo.

In this horrible story, the director slips in very beautiful shots, as he knows how to do, especially of the sky, but also at night, in the rain, with halos of light. It also offers improbable scenes like when for her birthday, Lucie (Janaina Halloy Fokan), the daughter of Melanie Doutey and Benoit Poelvoordeproposes a dance on music… metal. A scene that made us laugh a lot. From Fabrice Du Welz all spit.
