North American Premiere

Tout, Tout De Suite

Directed by Richard Berry

France, Belgium | 120 minutes | 2017

French with English subtitles

This gripping and wrenching thriller tells the true story of Ilan Halimi who was kidnapped for ransom in a Paris suburb. His captors, who dub themselves The Gang of Barbarians, operate under the assumption that his Jewish heritage means he is worth a lot of money. Taking the audience through the harrowing experience of the Halimi family and sharing a searing insight into Ilan's vicious ordeal, the story tracks the massive but futile investigation doomed by near-misses and tragedy that triggered a national outcry. For 24 days the police, insistent upon handling the case as a normal for-ransom kidnapping, failed to recognize the anti-Semitic overtones of the abduction. Faithfully reenacting events from the view of the various characters, Tout, tout de suite raises troubling questions about the state of anti-Semitism and race relations in contemporary France. The film boasts a top-notch cast including Idit Cebula (Three Colors: Blue), Marc Ruchmann (The Tourist), and Sylvie Testud (Fear and Trembling).
