The Origin of Evil is a thrilling mystery that follows a woman as she is sucked into a world of family secrets and betrayal.
When Stéphane (Laure Calamy, Call My Agent!) gets in touch with wealthy announcing that she is his long-abandoned daughter, his immediate family are none too thrilled. As Stéphane embarks on an extended visit in hopes of getting to know Serge, she also becomes entangled with the hostile women who share a tense existence in his beautifully appointed mansion by the sea and all of whom are clearly unsettled by the arrival of Serge's newly announced heir. But Stéphane is a confident liar with secrets of her own, which writer-director Sébastien Marnier teases out with cool assurance in this wildly entertaining drama that will keep you guessing all the way to the end.
