Tagline: is she the murderer, the victim, or both?

Plot: Raoul Ruiz's GENEALOGIES OF A CRIME is based on the case of Hermine van Hug, a 1920s psychoanalyst who believed that criminal tendencies are formed at age five and who labeled her nephew a murderer before he reached adolescence. The nephew proved her right by strangling her. The always compelling Catherine Deneuve plays Solange, a lawyer who loses every case she represents and nevertheless decides to represent the young accused killer. Ruiz's film is an intelligent, darkly comic meditation on family, free will, and the nature of the criminal mind.
