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 ...

Trivia

Jérôme Le Gris described Mélanie Laurent's character as a modern heroine, halfway between Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003) and The Thomas Crown Affair (1968). See more »

Goofs

Towards the end of the movie, there is a British news broadcast concerning the building of the new oil pipeline. The report states that the pipeline will cost "several million pounds sterling". A British reporter would never say this, they would say just "several million pounds". 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".
