Mothers’ Instinct is a remake of Masset-Depasse’s own 2018 film Duelles, starring Anne Coesens and Veerle Baetens.

“The perfect harmony of life is suddenly destroyed after a tragic accident,” says the logline of the American reboot.

“Guilt, suspicion and paranoia combine to sever their sisterly bond, and a psychological battle of wills begins as maternal instinct reveals its dark side.”

Both Mothers’ Instinct and Duelles are loosely based on Barbara Abel’s 2012 novel Derrière la Haine.

“It takes actors of the caliber of Jessica and Anne to convey the complexity of these two roles,” said Cannes SACD award winner Olivier in a statement.

“The relationship between mother and child is the strongest bond between two people. When that bond is severed, it challenges conventional morality and even sanity.

“In the closed-door atmosphere of 1960s America, Mothers’ Instinct becomes a terrifying high-pressure powder keg.”

On May 11, Deadline reported that Neon (Pig, Titane, Spencer) has already acquired US distribution rights to Mothers’ Instinct.
