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. She investigates and finds out that he is a doctor specialized in multiple transplants, and that... Written by Anonymous

Interesting concept but be willing to be disturbed
13 May 2003 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

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)
