Arnaud Desplechin
FRA 1992

Mathias, the son of French diplomat in Germany, is about to begin his training as a pathologist in Paris. Whilst crossing the Franco-German border on a train, he is singled out and harassed by customs officials. On his arrival in Paris, he is shocked to discover a mummified head in his luggage. Intrigued by the mystery, Mathias starts to use his skills to analyse the head and discovers that it belongs to a recently deceased Westerner. At the same time, he attempts to integrate with his fellow students, many of whom appear to have connections with the security services. Unwittingly, Mathias finds himself the instrument in a deadly vendetta between a former agent, Bleicher, and a man who assisted Soviet scientists in crossing the Iron Curtain.
