Format: DVD
The central performances in this film have a wonderful poise and the whole thing gleams with a Hitchcockian tension, perhaps a little like Rebecca in its focus on a large house with three, or possibly four principal players, depending on how you look at it in both cases. The lesbianism hinted at in that film is much more overtly piquant here, although it could hardly outdo the Mrs Danvers role ... I found the film quite gripping but inevitably a bit of a let-down at the end. But then I wonder whether the plot isn't a pretext for elegance and atmosphere of a highly cinematic kind, and that's really it, rather like certain films by Chabrol. Catherine Frot is memorable as the pianist, even if not particularly likeable. She evokes a complex response in her slightly imperious vulnerability in a way that is fascinating, and if the film were a bit larger in scope one might say it is really one of the outstanding screen performances of recent years. Her face is just so telling. The contrast with Deborah Francois, whose face is fixed in an enigmatic kind of focus and unnerving self-possession, could hardly be better exploited. In the end it's undone by the very thing that makes it work, namely its tension and arrow-like development, so typical of the thriller genre in general, and ultimately robbing it of a fuller human dimension.

Young melanie fails a piano exam and never plays again. The woman who fails her is a well-known but neurotic pianist married to a sucessful lawyer. Ten years later Melanie insinuates herself into her husband's officeand then into her family home and is invited to turn pages for an important concert by her trio. The superficially shrinking violet uses her immense sexual power to destroy both family and trio. Apart from the two set trios, the music ic specially composed and is so skilfully integrated into the film that one is hardly conscious of it but together with the restrained acting of the principals it sustains the underlying tension and menace throughout. A subtle and intriguing film.

Format: DVD
Twelve-year-old Melanie Prouvost is determined to become a world-class pianist. She practices with a single-mindedness which is daunting. She arrives with her mother at a conservatory where she will perform a difficult piece before a panel of judges. Many other children are competing. If she wins, her chances for a wonderful career will lie in front of her. As she takes her place at the piano and begins, one of the judges, a famous concert pianist, motions in a fan who wants an autograph. The judge whispers something, takes out a pen, thinks a moment, writes on the photo and returns it to the fan. Melanie's concentration is broken. She stops, tries to recover and performs badly. Afterwards, the judge simply comments that there was no reason for Melanie to stop. On the way out of the conservatory, Melanie suddenly pushes down the key cover on a piano when another girl is practicing, nearly crushing the girl's fingers. Melanie arrives home and locks her piano for good.

Several years later, Melanie (Deborah François), now a striking young woman, applies for and is accepted as an intern in a law office. She learns a senior partner needs someone to look after his young son while he is away for several weeks on business. His wife works and cannot always be available. When Melanie says she'd happily look after the boy, she is accepted. And when she arrives at the country manor, 25 miles outside Paris, we learn that the mother was in an auto accident and is still emotionally fragile. The woman, Ariane Fouchecourt (Catherine Frot), indeed works. She is a world-class pianist who now performs as part of a trio. And, yes, she was the judge who so thoughtlessly ruined Melanie's life ambition. She doesn't even remember the incident. Now we realize Melanie remembers all too well.

13 of 16 people found the following review helpful By MICHAEL ACUNA on 7 April 2007
Format: DVD
Tight as a clenched fist ready to bloody someone's eye, intelligent, crystal clear in its intentions and actions, Denis Dercourt's terrific "The Page Turner" is wicked, perverse and anti-social in the very best sense. Like the best anti-heroes, Melanie Prouvost (a chilly, single-minded, Deborah Francois) knows what she wants, knows what/who her target is and knows how to achieve her goals. And in this case her target is the famous, though emotionally and professionally fragile classical pianist, Ariane Fouchecourt (sexy, sophisticated, sleek, tragic Catherine Frot) and by extension Ariane's family: husband Jean (Pascal Greggory) and her son, also a pianist, Laurent.
Melanie is out for total annihilation and her methods are as subtle as a Cobra ingesting defenseless small birds: there is no way that her prey can escape.
Director/Screenwriter Dercourt has fashioned a film that is tightly paced (a mere 134 minutes, not one ounce of fat here) and expertly acted but what is particularly impressive in its humanity and its knowing appreciation of the workings of the human mind is the reason, the impetus for Melanie's campaign against Ariane.

The Page Turner is a wonderful little film.

At just over 80 minutes, the plot is as simple or as complex as the viewer wants, depending on how much you read into it.

A very atmospheric fantastic revenge drama, with perfectly measured performances from the two lead actresses, and a pure pleasure to watch from start to finish.

I would recommend this film to anyone who has an aversion to subtitles, or anyone who is new to French cinema. The script is economical, even quite spartan in places and often relies on facial expressions/actions rather than words to convey the mood.

As a fan of French cinema, I greatly enjoyed it.
