Girl on the Train (15)

André Téchiné's Parisian drama might just as easily have been called "The Girl Who Cried Wolf". Émilie Dequenne plays a young woman who, rejected at a job interview, makes a confused bid for attention and finds herself the centre of a race scandal.

Set amid a volatile, speed-obsessed city, it addresses notions of identity, integrity and a dark strain of antisemitism that keeps a tenacious hold on the French character.
