Late one night, the door buzzer rings at a medical clinic in Liege. Dr. Jenny Davin ignores it. The next morning Jenny learns that the caller was an unidentified young woman who has since died. Punctured with guilt, Jenny determines to discover who this woman was and how her short life came to its end.

The latest from Belgian maestros Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne showcases their distinctively dogged, deeply compassionate approach to storytelling while giving their familiar MO an ingenious genre twist. Think of The Unknown Girl as a social realist noir procedural. It will both tug at your heartstrings and keep you on the edge of your seat.
