Claude Chabrol directs this adaptation of the novel by Ruth Rendell. Philippe (Benoit Magimel), a salesman, lives with his mother and two sisters in the suburbs of Nantes. When he meets bridesmaid Senta (Laura Smet) at his sister's wedding, they begin a passionate and intense relationship. Senta soon proves to be very demanding however, when she claims that Philippe should prove his love to her by killing someone. Philippe pretends that he is responsible for the death of a local tramp, but when Senta promises to prove her love in the same way, and when another body is discovered, he soon begins to wonder exactly what kind of woman he is involved with.

I had heard this Ruth Rendell story dramatised on radio and was absolutely bowled over, so I was really pleased when I saw the DVD was being released. And I wasn't disappointed. Chabrol seems to have a special feeling for the books of Ruth Rendell (he has previous adaptations of her work) and the two main actors make the story nightmarish and yet believable.

Incidentally, I had no problems at all with the DVD I was sent.

Its a boy meets girl story,based on a Ruth Rendell novel. We follow the main character in his rather humdrum day to day existence, meet each member of his unremarkable family, and we observe his gradual loss of reason, and his surrender to passion, as he is drawn further into the mysterious encounter,until one day he realises he is inextricably in love with someone who treats killing as part of the love game. This film is interesting because not only is it a psychological thriller, it spends time setting up the socio-economic background which contributes to the choice that the protagonist eventually makes while his object of desire remains from beginning to end alluringly mysterious.

Like Rendells books, the perfect entertainment for a quiet evening.

This is an enjoyable film to watch because the acting and dialogue are good and the story is based on a Ruth Rendell book.Nice cinematography also helped.The bonus section of the dvd includes a 10 minute documentary
of the film making process and you'll hear and see a lot of Claude Chabrol the director and of Benoit Magimel and Laura Smet who play the main actors.

I was interested to read Mr Moore's review - I agree entirely with his thoughts on the film. On the matter of the faulty disc, I got a great deal from Cinefile - they sent me a new dvd by return. Faulty disc do happen from time to time, but Cinefile are to be congratulated on their prompt response to the problem. I was able to watch this film again and really enjoyed the making-of too.

This is a late masterpiece from one of French cinema's finest auteurs. And a very enjoyable thriller! The only problem was with the DVD. I bought two copies and found that neither played without the film stop/starting throughout, frame jumping, and at other moments suddenly speeding up. I tried both on three different players and had the same problems each time. So the five stars are for M.Chabrol; zero stars for CineFile Films.
- I returned faulty DVD to CineFile with SAE, and have just received, with a letter of apology (!), new one that plays. So five stars for CineFile!!!
