Heartbeat Detector

3

French director Nicolas Klotz fashions a cerebral yet absorbing drama in which past crimes return to haunt a new generation. New Bond baddie Mathieu Amalric plays Simon, a successful in-house shrink for a German-owned, Paris-based chemical corporation. Asked to investigate the dwindling mental health of the MD, Simon uncovers evidence of the company’s past involvement with Nazi's... But don’t expect a Michael Clayton-style corporate conspiracy thriller: characters mysteriously come and go and intense musical interludes bring a dream-like feel to Klotz’s provocative probe of contemporary capitalism.
