In the Electric Mist (French title: Dans la brume électrique) is a 2009 Franco-American mystical drama film based on the novel In the Electric Mist with Confederate Dead by James Lee Burke. It is directed by Bertrand Tavernier, written by Jerzy Kromolowski and Mary Olson-Kromolowski, and stars Tommy Lee Jones in the lead role of Louisiana police detective Dave Robicheaux.

The film has never been released cinematically in the U.S., only in Europe and Asia. It was shown twice on just one evening in James Burke's hometown of New Iberia, Louisiana. A trimmed-down version (102:00 minutes NTSC), cut by the studio, was released direct-to-DVD in the United States. A longer director's cut version (112:23 minutes) was released in the rest of the world and premiered at the 2009 Berlin International Film Festival. In 2009, the director's cut version won the Grand Prix at the first "Festival International du Film Policier de Beaune", which is the continuation of the "Festival du Film Policier de Cognac." It opened on April 15, 2009 in France to positive reviews while reviews for the American version were mixed (60 per cent on Rotten Tomatoes).

In December 2009, Bertrand Tavernier released a book titled Pas à Pas dans la Brume Électrique (Step by Step into The Electric Mist), which is a day-by-day account of the shooting of this movie.

In the Electric Mist is a sequel to 1996's Heaven's Prisoners, also adapted from a Burke novel. The character of Dave Robicheaux at that time was an ex-homicide detective in the swamplands of Louisiana and was portrayed by Alec Baldwin.

Synopsis

Michel Descombes (Philippe Noiret) est horloger dans le quartier de Saint-Paul à Lyon. Un matin, deux policiers se présentent à son atelier et le questionnent sur son fils, sans vouloir lui dire ce qui est arrivé. Il est immédiatement accompagné hors de Lyon sur le lieu où sa camionnette a été retrouvée, vide. Là, le commissaire Guilboud (Jean Rochefort) lui apprend que son fils a tué un homme. Tout au long de l'enquête l'incompréhension entre père et fils se manifeste. Le fils en cavale est arrêté avec sa compagne, et ne s'explique que confusément sur son acte. Peu à peu, Michel se solidarise avec son fils (ce qu'il proclamera d'ailleurs lors du procès). Des échanges de propos anodins dans l'anonymat du parloir montrent, à la fin du film, qu'une véritable connivence s'est installée.

Lucien Cordier (Philippe Noiret) is an ineffectual local constable with a cheating wife and laughable job. He accepts condescension from his superiors and his wife with good humor, as his antisocial personality allows him to tolerate such abuse. However, he soon realizes that he can use his position to gain vengeance with impunity, and he starts to kill everyone who has regarded him as a fool.

The film is set in a future where death from illness has become extremely unusual. When Katherine Mortenhoe (Romy Schneider) is diagnosed as having an incurable disease, she becomes a celebrity and is besieged by journalists. The television company NTV (headed by Vincent Ferriman) offers her a large sum of money if she will allow her last days to be filmed and made into a reality television show – they have already spied on her as she is told of her diagnosis (her doctor is colluding with them) and prepared posters for the show which show her face (to her annoyance when she sees the posters on display before they have contacted her).

Set in October 1920, it tells the story of Major Dellaplane, a man whose job is to find the identities of unknown dead soldiers after World War I. Dellaplane forms a relationship with a woman who is looking for her missing husband, but a dilemma begins when he learns that her husband may still be alive. The movie is a sensitive examination of the deep psychological scars left behind by the Great War, clear of sentiment yet with delicately nuanced irony.

While playing the trumpet in a burning room, the protagonist's voice is heard in narration. His story begins with him posing as "Danny Parker", a speed freak addicted to methamphetamine, who hangs out with friends while indulging in drugs. He also moonlights as an informant for two corrupt cops, Gus Morgan (Doug Hutchison) and Al Garcetti (Anthony LaPaglia). He is trying to set up a large meth score with notorious drug dealer Pooh Bear (D'Onofrio), an eccentric psychopath who lost his nose to excessive snorting of "Gack" (meth), while also attempting to set up a sting operation for Morgan and Garcetti.
