"Efficient fable about the dark and delusional aspects of love..."
24 November 2011 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

French director and writer Michel Spinosa's third feature film tells the story about librarian Anna M. who's quiet life with her mother in Paris takes an irreversible turn when she meets a doctor and immediately arises an obsessive infatuation for him.

This French psychological thriller written and directed by Michel Spinosa is an efficient fable about the dark and delusional aspects of love, which has one of the most convincing portrayals of a femme fatale since Glenn Close in Adrian Lyne's "Fatal Attraction" (1987). Continuously examining the protagonist on her devoted crusade towards a man she has convinced herself to be the one and only object of her affection, Michel Spinosa creates a suspenseful study of character which is one of the finest amongst the numerous films dealing with the theme of obsessive love. The direction is on point, the dialog is well written, the music and the enigmatic atmosphere is pivotal and Isabelle Carre's performance as an uncompromising femme fatale who renounces everything for an illusion of love in this character-driven drama, is sterling.
