French director Marina de Van follows her boldly audacious debut In My Skin with the thriller DON‘T LOOK BACK, another brave, disturbing plunge into darkness that plays with identity and body doubles a la David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive and David Cronenberg’s Dead Ringers. Author Jeanne (Sophie Marceau of The World Is Not Enough and Braveheart) has her new novel turned down and then begins to question everything. Was that table really located in that corner? Is this my husband? Is that my child? In a daringly cinematic moment that employs state of the art special effects, the character morphs into an entirely different actress (the luscious Monica Bellucci of The Matrix Reloaded, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, and The Passion Of The Christ,) and embarks on a determined quest to uncover the secret hidden in her past that has undermined her world. DON‘T LOOK BACK marks the next stage of a truly unconventional talent.
