    Jenny, a doctor just finished with her night practice, hears the doorbell but ignores it. On the next morning, Jenny finds out that an unidentified woman is found dead nearby and feels guilty. She tries to find out the girl’s identity on her own. Unlike Dardenne’s past work, the film takes on a thriller genre earlier into the plot and succeeds in building Jenny’s sense of guilt and in transferring that to the audience. Tension between the anxiety of the protagonist and the audience is a method he used in his previous works like The Son(2002), or Two Days One Night(2014). However, the emphasis put on the protagonist’s guilt is new. The distance between the camera and the characters become closer and the Dardenne brothers’ raise a morality question. A metaphor for the reality that little moments cannot be dismissed without a massive storm of reactions. [LEE Sang-yong]
