Revenge thriller directed by the controversial Verhoeven, stars Huppert and wowed critics at Cannes – hardly any need to say more. Nonetheless, Huppert is a ruthless CEO of a video game company. She is attacked in her own home and resolves to track down the perpetrator. Naturally she succeeds, but what follows is unusual: together they are drawn into an increasingly dangerous game of their own fuelled by sex and guilt. Powerhouse performance from Huppert. Nominated for Palme d’Or, 5 major awards so far.
‘Sheer brilliance and mastery of Huppert’s controlled, multi-faceted performance…a movie that will inspire debate for decades to come.’ (Catherine Bray, Time Out).
