Award-winning director Danis Tanovic (NO MAN'S LAND) directs a glittering French cast in HELL, the second of three films based on Krzysztof Kieslowski's Heaven, Purgatory, Hell trilogy.
In Paris in the 1980s, a man, fresh from his release from prison, is rejected by his wife. After a violent confrontation he throws himself from his apartment window, witnessed by his three young daughters. In present day Paris, the sisters, now grown up, live their own lives. The family bonds are broken. Sophie (Emmanuelle Beart), the eldest, is married with young children, but suspects her photographer husband of having an affair. The youngest sister, Anne (Marie Gillain), is a student involved in a messy relationship with one of her tutors. Middle sister Celine (Karin Viard) lives a solitary and joyless life, caring for her difficult mother (Carole Bouquet). When a young man starts to take an interest in her, she little suspects the true motive behind his approaches.
