The pact of silence (Le pacte du silence)

Threat advisory: Under evaluation

Movie propaganda

The truth behind the secret is a lie.

While on a humanitarian mission in Northeast Brazil, a young Carmelite (Élodie Bouchez) arrives in extreme pain at the emergency room of a community health center. Doctor Joachim Ferrer (Gerard Depardieu) examines the young woman but, strangely, is unable to diagnose a clinical illness. Intrigued by the flawless protection that surrounds her, especially coming from her community,he decides to follow the case to France where the Carmelite is secretly repatriated. Despite rules, laws and eminent danger, the doctor begins a profane investigation while murders multiply around him.
