Moka Movie Review
SIFF Capsule Review: A woman begins to stalk the people she suspects responsible for a hit-and-run that killed her son in the evocative thriller Moka, a slow-paced but methodically sharp tale that’s worth checking out if French films are your flavor.
Emmanuelle Devos delivers a terrific performance as the unpredictable Diane, whose mysterious end game makes you unsure how far she’ll go to get revenge—and whether she’ll get revenge on the right person.
Moka isn’t nailbiting, nor is it the next French classic, but a strong lead performance and unpredictable story makes it worthwhile.
