Charlotte's (Émilie Dequenne) mother (Ludmila Mikael) is found dead in her derelict house in the country, where she worked as the village's clairvoyant, murdered, and to come to terms with the violent death of the mother she hardly ever visited, Charlotte, a sound engineer on documentary films, moves into her house - and soon realizes that with her sound equipment, she can hear (and record) events that happened in the house in the past - but it seems that each spot in the house's lving room is only able to hold recollections of no more than one moment in time ... so with an elaborate system made out of thread that resembles a spider's web, Charlotte tries to a) find the spot where she can listen in on her mum's murder and b) find out who the killer is - suspects include mother's ex husband and Charlotte's father (Jacques Spiesser), the village's corrupt mayor (Etienne Chicot), a couple (Roland Marchisio, Chrystelle Labaude), whose son's death she predicted, and even the retarded neighbour (Bruno Flender) ... but in the end, the killer turns out to be mother's own lover Julien (Mathieu Demy), who has run over a small boy - incidently above-mentioned couple's son - and has buried his corpse to hide the evidence. But when Charlotte's mother wanted to make him confess everything to the police, he murdered her.

In the end, Charlotte can get a confession out of him before handing him over to the police ...

 

One thing up front Émilie Dequenne is great in the lead role, she carries the film over many a leap of reason, is able to give substance to some of its murkier spots. The film as such though is less than great, its plot in itself makes hardly any sense, it by and large lacks suspense and while the direction is perfectly moody, the film lacks atmosphere. Plus, the number of scenes in which you see a microphone hanging into the frame is simply amazing - which is kind of ironic, since this film is about a movie sound engineer - and this more often than not puts one totally of the narrative as such. Still, thanks to Dequenne, this one is not a total failure.
