Storyline

Fifteen-year-old Céline knows more about life than is appropriate for her age. She wanders the streets, surviving, with the help of her boyfriend Romain, thanks to her defiance and ruthless practicality. She secretly sleeps in the garden house of a luxury villa, where one evening she is discovered by the owner, Judge Henri van Eyck. Despite his wife Nathalie's reticence, he takes the girl in and Céline gradually gains their goodwill and affection. The fragile balance of their mutual trust, however, comes in serious jeopardy when the web of lies the girl has told her protectors begins to unravel, revealing her real motives. Written by Karlovy Vary Int'l Film Festival

Simenon style
3 June 2011 | by See all my reviews

A working-class girl takes refuge in the outhouse of a desirable mansion,where a well-to-do couple lives :he is a judge and they have not got any children.Very soon,the runaway(?) shows up and ,little by little ,interfere with her hosts' life.She tells them she could be helpful as a cook or as a chamber maid.We soon learn that her mother is in jail and that she has a boyfriend she sees from time to time.

The audience expects a love affair between the mature man (or why not the wife?) and the teenager .But the relationship is actually much more complex:the bourgeois couple was never able to have a child and the woman's pastime is making dolls .In this old house,where everybody seems to invent a past for himself,something ominous is slowly happening.The girl is actually some kind of exterminating angel .People who like Georges Simenon's books (and the movies based on them) can have a look.
