Marina Foïs is here totally insane, crazy, lunatic at the possible. A twisted woman in a sort of a version of FATAL ATTRACTION or PLAY MISTY FOR ME, where Foïs would be Glenn Close or Jessica Harper. For those who know these two classics. Foïs plays a disturbed gal who harasses men and then stops at nothing, even to criminal act, to succeed in her goal.

One of the characters look really like Benicio Del Torro. One of the men harassed by Foïs
A good feature.
