Storyline

Lucrèce is a contract killer in search of a new life. Specialized in the use of poisons and enamored with opera, she accepts a difficult, final hit in a castle in the heart of the Swiss Alps. Posing as a soprano, Lucrèce must perform on stage during the very prestigious Festival of Ermeux and slaughter one of her co-performers, British baritone Alexander Child, who recently bought a distillery in Scotland, and thus became the only obstacle to a strategic pipeline project with considerable financial ramifications. He just won a long legal battle against British Oil, who now has no other choice but to eliminate him. To complicate things, French counter-espionage learns of the hit and sends Rico, a reinstated former agent, to infiltrate the orchestra, unmask and terminate all who wish harm to Alexander Child. Rico has no information on the killer and has a lot of trouble identifying her amid a horde of suspicious characters: an obnoxious conductor, a particularly proud tenor and a ...

Goofs

When in her bedroom, Lucrèce is heard tapping numerous keys on her macbook laptop, followed by the idiosyncratic noise of the macbook starting up. This noise is only produced when a macbook is powering up, which requires pushing only the 'on' button, which doesn't make a sound. See more »

Don't watch it, do not spend your time with this mess !
23 February 2012 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of the reasons why I signed up @ IMDb . This movie has stolen 90 minutes of my life and I want them back.

To prevent others to watch this movie I will now list a few points why I do not like this movie

First of all , it has a weak plot. There are thousand movies about female assassins but If you are shooting a movie about this topic , the screenplay should well implemented. But here's the reason why this could not work : the screenplay is awful! The story is very predictable and therefore boring, why did I watched it anyway? I don't know. Maybe I like the actor Tchéky Karyo ( Dobermann ) but he was the only who sticks out in this "movie".
