1. Film data

 


English synopsis

L’Embrumé offers the story of a son (Henri Jr) who wants to avenge his father (Henri Sr) who, beyond death, has sent him on a mission against his uncle—a mission which will lead Henri Jr to pretend he is mad (and drunk), to murder Pollon, Rosen and Stern, to confront his mother in her bedroom, to drive Felly into committing suicide and to fight with her brother during her funeral. The story ends in a family bloodbath from which Gerty will, however, come out alive.
