Storyline

An act of revenge takes an unexpected turn in this psychological drama from French writer and director Lola Doillon. Anna (Kristin Scott Thomas) flees a house on the outskirts of Paris and returns home, careful to tell no one where she's been or what she's been doing. The next day, after an ordinary day of work as an OB-GYN, Anna stops at a police station and reports that she had been kidnapped. Years before, she has performed a cesarean section on a woman who did not survive, and the patient's Yann (Pio Marmai), driven mad by grief, abducted Anna and intended to punish her for the death of his wife and child. However, after spending several days together in Yann's basement, he and Anna discovered their contempt for one another was giving way to more complex emotions, which complicate both of their senses of justice. Contre Toi (aka In Your Hands) was an official selection at the 2010 BFI London Film Festival. Written by Fraghera

A draw
19 July 2011 | by stenssonSee all my reviews

I starts so well. The female doctor is kidnapped by the husband to a patient who has died due to the doctor's care. He doesn't really want revenge. He wants balance.

That kind of story is not untold before. The two of them gets acquainted, because of what's called the Stockholm syndrome. The balance tips over and the moral is that it isn't really such a thing as balance. And if there is, there's anyway a prize for it, which is hardly reachable.

But when you leave the theater, you feel that the not untold story anyway is told one too many times.
