"...a meticulously crafted and mesmerizing deconstruction of the mind of a murderer."
– The Hollywood Reporter,
"CRUEL remains a dense, murky character study throughout."
– Bloody Disgusting,
Pierre is a lonely 40-something living with his ill father. Intensely quiet, no one seems aware of his existence. Pierre's only respites from his solitary existence are childhood memories of his dead mother and killing innocent strangers. When Pierre meets Laure, his murderous inclinations subside, but not for long. The tension between his tender, burgeoning romance and his homicidal urges drives Pierre to the brink.
