Thriller french style
29 January 2006 | by The_PcSee all my reviews

Louise is a deaf-born actress who just won a Cesar. She lives in a luxurious Parisian flat with Yann, her 20 year older husband. Each night she anxiously awaits his return. Yann is a very affectionate and tender husband but every so often his return turns into a real nightmare, both physically and psychologically, for Louise. She confides in her best friend Stephanie who also happens to be Yann's former girlfriend. Until one night everything just tilts over the edge...

A thriller with the additional twist of taking place in the world of a deaf protagonist. Not really an extremely original script but a good film thanks to its nice photography and solid acting. This is helped by the fact that the script stays quite close to reality and does not go over the top as is sometimes the case in similar Hollywood movies.

It might not win awards but it definitely will make for an enjoyable viewing, keeping you doubting about the outcome.
