The psychological thriller is titled Désordres (Chaos), and it stars Isaach De Bankolé and Sonia Rolland, as history professor Vincent and his wife Marie, who have just moved from Paris (with their son) to a farm near a small town in the south of France, looking forward to a quieter life. Marie, a retired renowned international pianist unwillingly follows her husband. However, their hopes for a serene escape is disrupted from the very beginning, when Thibaut, one of Vincent’s students (played by Niels Schneider), invades their family getaway, and slowly, but surely, the couple starts to come apart. The film is directed by Étienne Faure.

From the looks of the trailer and teaser-clip embedded below, actresses Liya Kebede and Aissa Maiga are clearly not the stars of French director Alain Chabat's comedy, Sur la piste du Marsupilami (On The Trail Of Marsupilami).  But they're talented, they're beautiful, and they bring a little something special to a scene whenever they're on-screen.  So I'll definitely try to see this one if I can.
