HCF Review - Guilt Complex

FEVER (2014)

Fever is a French crime story (not to be confused with the German drama directed Elfi Mikesch) about two young boys studying literature and philosophy who, in the opening seconds of the film have murdered a woman in her apartment. This happens off screen, with just a few sounds of the death being heard. This impersonal act starts the whole thing moving and gets to the core themes in a story where they have decided that without motive, without even knowing the victim it’s not really a crime.
