A slow thriller about a young trainee nurse who suspects that one of the doctors working at the hospital is up to no good.
The white wash of the entire hospital gives the film it's eerie, anonymous feel, however it remains highly predictable throughout which is a little annoying. Fortunately the obvious chemistry between the main actors compensates and certainly adds to the tension that is needed. Sophie Quinton is entirely believable as the naive Isabelle and never 'overplays' the part and Laurent Lucas is perfect for the charming yet sinister doctor.
One for those who like Hitchcock and don't mind sitting though a 2 hour film, although it does make you think twice about going to the doctor again ...
