A dazzling mix of shocking family drama, picturesque seaside landscapes and three generations of brilliant French actresses - the luminous Chiara Mastroianni, sexy ingénue Laura Smet and grand dame Danielle Darrieux - Towards Zero (L'Heure zero) is a smart, smoldering and thrilling update of one of Agatha Christie's most enduring works.
When Guillaume has the bizarre idea of inviting his ex-wife Aude (Chiara Mastroianni) to a family reunion at the luxurious coastal estate of his wealthy Aunt Camilla (Danielle Darrieux), his tempestuous new wife Caroline (a delicious Laura Smet) becomes filled with rage. Guillaume hopes that they'll become friends but the two women despise one another. But things turn ugly when Camilla is found dead in her bedroom - and only the trusty Inspector Bataille can put together the pieces. But as the Inspector untangles her mysterious death, he also begins to unearth dark family secrets, brewing jealousies, and perhaps even a murderer in their midst.
