Is this the case? By immersing itself in the genesis of this film, and therefore of the novel which served as the basis for the script written by, with , we learn that it is indeed a news that served as a trigger book. This book, which has the title cry rivers, is signed .

The film freely adapts the novel, while keeping a very "detective novel" which gives a sustained rhythm to the intrigue, in particular using ellipses. " My desire was to tell this intimate story in a breathtaking way. Since the characters act in haste, it seemed necessary to me that the film coated this same emergency character in her rhythm and her dramaturgy.

We imagined a narration made of ellipses and worked around the question of off-champ. All that we do not say and that 'We do not show add to the tension of the story, makes it possible to make the spectator active and put it in empathy with the characters.
