Diane Kurys manages a very substantial shock without any blood (or maybe a drop). More shocking is the low rating I find my IMDB companions give this film. Its simplicity moved me, and Kurys gets a lot of suspense without straining for it. The actors are all pretty good looking, too. The film says a lot about a woman striving for independence, and suggests that she may have succeeded.
