20 Minutes

Gustav Möller orchestre un suspense brillant, récompensé par le Prix de la critique au Festival de Beaune : un huis clos où le spectateur se retrouve bloqué avec le héros et son téléphone. C'est après avoir entendu un appel d'urgence sur Internet que le cinéaste suédois installé au Danemark a eu l'idée de son film. « J'ai compris que chaque personne écoutant cet enregistrement verrait des images différentes », se souvient-il dans le dossier de presse.

Jouant avec la claustrophobie et une bande-son très riche, il fait monter la tension avec brio mais il n'a pas été le premier à utiliser le concept d'« unité de lieu et de temps » au cinéma.

In an elegant Georgian house in the hamlet of Road in Wiltshire, all was quiet. The prosperous Kent family - nine family members, and three servants - were all asleep in their beds. Or so it seemed. Constance Kent. Jonathan Whicher was one of the original members of the Detective Branch which had been established at Scotland Yard in 1842.

Constance Kent

In 1860 he was called in to assist the investigation into the horrific murder of 4-year-old (Francis) Savile Kent. The child had been taken from the nursemaid's bedroom at night and was found, with his throat cut, in an outside privy in the garden of his family's house the next morning. The murder brought notoriety to the small village of Road (sometimes spelled Rode) in Wiltshire. When the nursemaid, Elizabeth Gough, reported the child missing at 7:15am to Mrs Kent, a search commenced for the child, who was found dead in an outside privy with his throat cut and a stab wound to the chest. TeachingEnglish. This is an activity that I've used with students of all levels to practise their ability to describe people and events and to produce questions.


It's also good for getting students to really listen to each other and to take notes or just for some fun. Preparation The activity is based around a short video clip of a crime. Any crime scene will do. The video doesn't even have to be in English as you can do it with the sound off. Procedure You should split the class into two groups and tell one half that they are going to be the police and they are going to interview the witness to a crime. If you have a video that is in English you can play it with the sound on and, for higher levels, even extend the focus to reported speech: 'He told everyone to put up their hands.'

Desiree's Baby by Kate Chopin

When she reached L'Abri she shuddered at the first sight of it, as she always did. It was a sad looking place, which for many years had not known the gentle presence of a mistress, old Monsieur Aubigny having married and buried his wife in France, and she having loved her own land too well ever to leave it. The roof came down steep and black like a cowl, reaching out beyond the wide galleries that encircled the yellow stuccoed house. Big, solemn oaks grew close to it, and their thick-leaved, far-reaching branches shadowed it like a pall.

Young Aubigny's rule was a strict one, too, and under it his negroes had forgotten how to be gay, as they had been during the old master's easy-going and indulgent lifetime. The young mother was recovering slowly, and lay full length, in her soft white muslins and laces, upon a couch. Test Your Awareness : Whodunnit? DETECTIVE STORY by Céline DELFOUR on Prezi.
