Disorder (AKA Maryland)

Young French writer-director Alice Winocour moves from analysing  a 19th century “hysterical” neurological case in her 2012 debut film and Cannes Critics’ Week hit Augustine to considering the post-traumatic stress disorder of a Middle East war soldier in her second feature, Disorder (aka Maryland).

The sensitive macho Matthias Schoenaerts is pretty much center-screen throughout this sleekly made suspense piece that switches within itself to confound the viewer in unexpected ways.
