      Scott Marks San Diego Reader Around the 77-minute mark, the film appears to reach its logical conclusion, and then proceeds to hit the audience with another satisfying 10 minutes of twists. The real delight comes in watching Baye play mouse to Devos' cat. Rated: 3/5 Jul 18, 2017 Full Review Mark Jenkins Washington Post "Moka" is a stark, moody mystery that doesn't actually contain much mystery. Instead, it excels as a character study and a dynamic face-off between two formidable actresses: Emmanuelle Devos and Nathalie Baye. Rated: 2.5/4 Jul 6, 2017 Full Review G. Allen Johnson San Francisco Chronicle You could rightly call it a thriller, but a slow-burning one, and a film that's driven by character, not plot points. Rated: 4/4 Jun 28, 2017 Full Review Dustin Chang ScreenAnarchy Baye, a veteran actress, gives a fine performance as an ordinary woman dealing with her career, motherhood and relationship. Her Marlene's guarded friendliness hides her dormant venom which we get to see a glimpse of. Jul 17, 2020 Full Review Erin Blackwell Bay Area Reporter If the anti-climax was designed to confound my thirst for vengeance, it succeeded. Jun 8, 2020 Full Review Dan Scully Cinema76 I sat down for a "French revenge thriller" but instead got a meditation on the dangers of snap emotional judgments ... and it was something I didn't know I needed.

      dave s Months after her son is killed in a hit-and-run accident, Diane (Emmanuelle Devos), still suffering from the loss, takes matters into her own hands due to what she feels is an ineffective police investigation. With the assistance of a private investigator, she is able to track down the perpetrators of the crime with the intention of meting out justice as she perceives it. While Moka certainly builds tension throughout based simply on the tragic circumstances, it is more of a character study than a traditional thriller, focusing on Diane's grief and her insatiable need to exact vengeance for her loss. Devos gives a remarkable performance, her eyes expressing her deep sorrow more than any words could ever convey. While none of it feels original from a story point of view, It is worth watching due to its flawless execution and penetrating emotions. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Loved this movie. The acting was very believable and engaging. The photography and cinematography really moved the story along. The underlying tragedy was present in several fronts. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Don't waste your time! , Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member More of a straight drama than a psychological thriller "Moka's" tension unfolds by way of the audience guessing as to how and when and if "Helene" will exact her measure of justice on her unknowing suspects and indeed if that is all they are...the correct pair responsible for the hit-and-run death of her teen-age son and only child. "Moka" is at its best when the two lead actresses are "squaring off" against each other. The grieving Mother sizing up her mark w/ probing questions and the salon owner wondering what this stranger telling tales about herself is really up to. "Moka" would have been better served w/o extraneous male lead characters; things tend to bog down or become quickly and uncomfortably awkward when given screen time. "Moka" is a slow-burn exercise in bad judgements and hidden agendas going sideways. At an economical 90 minutes it's worth viewing for those interested. Be advised "Moka's" 1.5 hours feel closer to 2. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Read all reviews
