The Apparition

Xavier Giannoli’s “The Apparition” begins in the Middle East with a blinding light. It is not that of a religious apparition but a bomb that leaves war correspondent Jacques (Vincent Lindon, “The Measure of Man,” “Rodin,” “Welcome”) dazed and deaf in one ear and his photographer and best friend dead. The latter spent his whole life trying to prove the violence and madness of men through his photos, Jacques says later. Now he has proved it with his death.
