Signature

TV-Series | FR 2011 | 64' | Subtitled English

A man is chased across a lava field. When his pursuer catches up with him, he smashes his skull with a rock. Filmed against the backdrop of volcanoes covered in lush green vegetation on the island of La Réunion, these spectacular images mark the beginning of SIGNATURE, a six-part series from broadcaster France 2. A couple of months after the murderer, a French journalist arrives on the island. In her wallet, she carries a photograph of the deceased. At this time she does not know that he was the victim of a serial killer. Soon, though, the murderer and the reporter will meet. French film star Sandrine Bonnaire shines in the role of the journalist with an obsession and a mysterious assignment. The killer is played by Sami Bouajila, a great, but unfortunately little known actor in this country. In recent years, he delivered his most notable performances in lead roles in Rachid Bouchareb’s (LONDON RIVER) motion pictures. Those who are fed up with Scandinavia as a venue for inscrutable murder mysteries will find a captivating tropical alternative in SIGNATURE.
