Storyline

Laura Bartelli is a stripper in a French bar. She retires after a moody landscape architect named Marco Tisserand asks her to abandon her life and share his. However, after her red Volkswagen runs off the road en route to the rendezvous, she ends up scarred and comatose in a hospital. Marco stays at her bedside. After some months, she awakens in a world of silence and gradually begins her new life with Marco, which is filled with affection and tenderness. She begins to love herself as much as she loves Marco. They have a son, Jeannot. Laura's deafness is more an irritation than an impediment and six years pass in family harmony. However, when Jeannot displays an unusual dysfunction at school, she goes to see a psychologist in Lyon, and shows a photograph of her son with his father. The psychologist recognizes Marco as a former university student colleague and tells her that he is a doctor a doctor with a past and even darker intentions for her and their child.

Familiar Evil Husband Plot With a Bizarre Twist
27 December 2004 | by (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

CORPS A CORPS aka BODY SNATCH (3 outta 5 stars) Decent enough French thriller which will undoubtedly be remade in America one day starring Charlize Theron or Ashley Judd or someone of that stature. This French version stars Emmanuelle Seigner (Mrs. Roman Polanksi) as a stripper who is actively courted by a strange little man who keeps coming to her club. Finally having had enough of the sleazy life of a dancer she decides to marry him and begin a new life. Unfortunately she is then involved in a terrible car crash and wakes up from a coma six months later covered in scars. Her faithful suitor has stayed by her side all this time. They get married and have a son. Five years later some suspicions begin to arise about the circumstances of the crash and the secret past of her husband. I don't want to give anything away because the husband's secrets are pretty bizarre (and even a little hard to swallow). The acting and the script are well-done enough to let you forgive some of the lapses in logic that tend to occur in these sorts of movies. The last half hour in particular seems to follow the predictable thriller pattern but the acting will keep your attention focused on what's going to happen next.
