Set on the French Riviera and featuring a ‘who’s who’ of French acting talent, Nicolas Bedos’
terrific thriller will have you guessing at every plot twist and turn. After his dancing career is
cut short by a motorcycle accident, gigolo Adrien (Pierre Niney) spends his time on the
Riviera, where he is supported by former movie star Martha (Isabelle Adjani). His life takes a
new turn when he meets the beautiful con-artist Margot (Marine Vacth, fabulous).
Together, they come up with a dark plan to set themselves free from the bonds preventing a
new life together… ‘Love makes fools of everyone in “Masquerade” (“Mascarade”). Nicolas Bedos’ elaborate, spider’s web of intrigue and betrayal trails a twisty, double-dealing thriller around the tangled emotions of a tragic romance… It is a much darker prospect than the heart-warming charmer “La Belle Époque” (2019), but the satisfyingly slippery storytelling played to the hilt by an all-star cast promises a similar commercial success.’—Allan Hunter, Screen
