Interesting concept but be willing to be disturbed
I went to see the movie because a friend told me that I would like it...
Well, it's an interesting concept : Laura (Emmanuelle Seignier), a stripper meets Marco (Philippe Torreton), a seemingly Prince Charming who is willing to marry her and take her away from her miserable life, giving her hopes for a decent future. But as she leaves the nightclub on her last night of work, she has a car accident and wakes up in a hospital room, deaf and severely injured. Prince Charming has not let her down though, as he comes for regular visits, then sticks to the original plan. He takes her to his mansion where he teaches her signs language and help her get back on her feet. They get married, and have a baby.
Six years later, an incident at school involving their son, Jeannot (Clement Brilland) triggers Laura's curiosity about the real identity of her now husband and the origin of her scars. She starts an investigation on her own in order to uncover the terrible truth...
I can't tell more here, but it's kind of haunting and as if coming from a disturbed mind, one is entitled to wonder. It reminded me somehow of Dead Ringers directed by David Cronenberg, with Jeremy Irons. (6/10)
