This is the first film directed by Hélène Filières, the female Corsican gang leader of MAFIOSA TV mini series. This movie is a rather strange feature, inspired from actual events: the offbeat death of a famous banker: Edouard Stern, killed by his mistress with whom he had a sadomasochistic relationship. Benoit Pooelverde finds here a character which suits him like a glove. The same for Laetitia Casta. This is also a film with nameless characters. At any moment, we know their real names. Just characters. Period.
This movie is worth a look. A good try for a first film. I think Hélène Filières will continue in film making. She seems gifted for this.
Philippe Nahon has also a nasty character, usual for him.
