Brief synopsis

Quelques minutes avant d’abattre froidement son père et sa mère, Benjamin Feller, un jeune homme de 18 ans apparemment sans histoire, envoie par la poste à sa professeure de français son journal intime dans lequel il confesse et explique son double meurtre. L’enseignante se retrouve interrogée par la justice, puis bientôt confrontée à ses propres doutes. Et si son goût pour une littérature hantée par les tourments de l’âme humaine l’avait rendue aveugle sur la détresse de son élève, et sur ce qui se cachait derrière la prose fiévreuse qu’il lui avait fait lire bien avant son crime ?

===============

A few minutes before killing his father and mother in cold blood, Benjamin Feller - a young 18-year-old who apparently had no prior history - sends his intimate diary via post to his French teacher, in which he explains and confesses his act. The teacher finds herself being questioned by the authorities and is soon confronted with her own doubts. What if her taste for literature that is obsessed with the sufferings of the human soul had blinded her to her student's distress and to what was hidden in the feverish prose which he had shown her well before his crime?
