The Film Society of Minneapolis St. Paul presents:
The Woman In The Fifth, Director Pawel Pawlikowski, 85 min, France, 2012.
In French with English subtitles.
Showing - Fri, Jun 29 through Thurs, Jul 5 on Screen 3 at St. Anthony Main Theatre.

American writer Tom Ricks (Ethan Hawke) arrives in Paris to be closer to his young daughter who is living with his estranged ex-wife. Completely broke, he accepts a job as a night guard for a local crime boss. Stationed in a basement office, his only task is to push a button when a bell rings. The tranquility of the night, he hopes, will help him focus on his new novel.

His days become more exciting when he starts a romance with Margit (Kristin Scott Thomas), a mysterious and elegant widow who sets strange rules to their meetings: she will only see him at her apartment in the fifth arrondissement, at 5 pm sharp, twice a week and he should ask no questions about her work or her past life. When people suddenly start dying around Tom, he begins to believe that a dark force has entered his life. (Art Takes Over)

“Pawel Pawlikowski keeps a tight grip on his film, insisting a seriousness that the actors wrap themselves in like a mantle… [Ethan Hawke] draws you close.” - Manohla Dargis, THE NEW YORK TIMES
