Alain Getty, a brilliant young home automation engineer, and his wife Benedicte having recently arrived in a new town, invite Alain's boss Richard Pollock and his wife Alice to dinner. The encounter does not leave the young couple's harmony unscathed. The discovery of a mysterious rodent's corpse blocking the waste pipe of their kitchen sink does nothing to help and portends the bursting of irrationality into a hitherto orderly life.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Holds enough interest throughout to keep you entertained -- unless you're afraid of mice."
‑ Marta Barber, Miami Herald
"It's a tale of normality invaded by pathology. But here, the danger seems less plausible, the conflict more contrived."
‑ Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
"slick, funny and unsettling, slipping between psychological thriller, absurdist farce and ghost story into an unnerving dreamscape where psychosis meets metempsychosis."
‑ Anton Bitel, Eye for Film
"full review in Greek"
‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
"...an intriguing head game from a talented director who needs to solidify his ideas with a bit more substance before he can become truly great. The cast clicks and collides in all its configurations"
‑ Laura Clifford, Reeling Reviews
"Dominik Moll's masterfully cast psychological thriller Lemming crackles with tension; its story keeps going off to unexpected places as we watch breathlessly, unable to look away."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"Even by the strictest standards of odd French psychological drama, the behavior here is particularly opaque."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"If Lemming doesn't necessarily work on an intellectual level, it sure does emotionally."
‑ Lewis Beale, Film Journal International
"If you're content to let dream logic take over, a lot can be gleaned from this odd, darkly funny meditation on life, death, love and revenge."
‑ Marc Mohan, Oregonian
"Unlike Hitchcock, whose plots were models of clean lines and logical avenues, Moll is more interested in subverting everything familiar, and in leaving stones unturned."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"This spooky, quasi-sci-fi, psychological thriller is unclear about what's real and what's not -- and not in any interesting way."
‑ Bill Stamets, Chicago Sun-Times
"More disturbing than thrilling, Lemming, like Alice, overstays its welcome, but does get around to a finishing kick."
‑ Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle
"A cross between a psychological and supernatural thriller, the film is intriguing, baffling and often confusing"
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"... wears out its eerie mood with little to justify dragging it out for more than two hours."
‑ Sean Axmaker, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
"The high quality of [Moll's] actors does not relieve the story from seeming ambitiously fudge-brained."
‑ David Elliott, San Diego Union-Tribune
