I just saw this at the New Italian Cinema festival at NY's Lincoln center. While the digitally shot film was not without interest, it really comes across as re-tread of Chabrol, particularly in the last third. However the young director/writer/star's work is impressive when you consider she made this film for about $5,000 US.
