The new film from acclaimed directors the Dardenne brothers ("Two Days, One Night") is a searing saga of guilt and redemption. One evening after work hours, Jenny (Adèle Haenel), a young doctor, allows the door buzzer at the small clinic where she works to go unanswered. It’s only later that she learns that the person ringing was an unidentified African woman found dead shortly after by the side of a road. Consumed by the thought that she is to blame, Jenny embarks on an obsessive crusade to discover who the anonymous woman was and to see to it that she is not forgotten. Shot through with low-key suspense and the heart-stopping realism that has become the directors’ trademark, THE UNKNOWN GIRL is both a gripping mystery and a profoundly human moral tale.

"THE UNKNOWN GIRL isn’t just about guilt but also racism, the folly of pride and our collective need to be absolved for the bad things we’ve done—even if the penance doesn’t fit the infraction. All of this is done masterfully, but I confess it was masterful in just the way I expected. As a result, The Unknown Girl filled me with guilt as well—for not loving it more than I did."
Tim Grierson - PASTE MAGAZINE

"You think afresh of the film’s title and wonder, Who is more unknown here, the nameless victim or the inscrutable doctor?"
Anthony Lane - THE NEW YORKER

"The Dardenne brothers deliver a perceptive portrait of professional integrity under pressure."
Simon Kinnear - TOTAL FILM

"The somewhat drab aesthetic and almost vanishingly understated performance style dull the potential pleasures of a good old-fashioned whodunnit to roughly the luminosity of an above-average feature-length episode of a TV procedural."
Jessica Kiang - THE PLAYLIST

"THE UNKNOWN GIRL is as tense as a police procedural, and as mysterious as a religious parable."
A.O. Scott - THE NEW YORK TIMES
