Time & Tickets

After his career as a ballet dancer is ended by a motorbike accident, Adrien has settled down on the Côte d’Azur as the live-in lover of the elderly actress Martha. His life takes a new turn when he meets Margot, a young con artist who scours the French Riviera in search of rich men she can extort with compromising pictures. Together, Adrien and Margot hatch a plan to extort some money from wealthy real estate agent Simon.

MASCARADE is a con film by the book. Director Bedos knows his classics and uses elements from films like CHARADE, DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS and SUNSET BOULEVARD, adding some sun-drenched images of southern France and a little sex. And as befits this genre, there is always the question of who is actually the con man, and who is the victim.

Nicolas Bedos, France, 2022, 135 min. French spoken, Dutch subtitles. With Pierre Niney, Isabelle Adjani, François Cluzet, Marine Vacth, Emmanuelle Devos..
