I always cringe when I hear word Hitchcockian. Timeless masterpieces by the grand master who practically invented the genre of thriller and suspense, just do not transfer well in this era. So, I wasn't wrong again, even if this neat, a bit campy flick managed to entertain and even produce few chills. All of this happens mostly due to Nathalie Baye, the grand dame of French cinema. Even in this more than slightly over the top movie, she brings certain aura of dignity. She plays her character tightly without unnecessary histrionics, but with some welcome detachment, to let us know not to take anything to seriously. Even in all of this blood and gore she maintains certain amusement.
