Reviews

After a violent encounter with a disturbed stranger, Anna (Kristin Scott Thomas), a respectable surgeon, enters into a terrifying labyrinth of passion and danger, teetering constantly on the brink of control. An intense, claustrophobic thriller, In Your Hands is an astute and complex examination of the fluid, mutally treacherous relationship between victim and aggressor, cptive and jailer.

Format: DVD
Kristin Scott-Thomas seems to be an extremely busy actress who has cornered the market on doing hyper intense things in French. This one is a typical piece of Gallic slow-burn art house cinema. Typical of the French is that they manage to throw in a bit of eroticism in a film that to be fair needed a bit of livening up. Scott-Thomas plays a surgeon at a prison hospital who is kidnapped by a man with a grudge. The film is mainly set in the confines of the cell like room she is kept prisoner in. We then get something of a case study in Stockholm Syndrome. Writer/director Lola Doillon manages to keep you guessing about the films conclusion.

Hats off to Scott-Thomas once again who gives a very powerful performance in the central role. By the time you have finished watching this you will be left in no doubt that she is a very fine actress indeed. Time seems to have been kinder to her than many and I suspect she has been supping from the fountain of eternal youth. There are some decent scenes between her and the kidnapper played by Pio Marmai. Given the short running time the Scott-Thomas character is well fleshed out, something the French seem to be good at. She is found to be a lonely character, brought about by the selfish pursuit of her career. The calm aloof professional exterior is stripped away whilst incarcerated to reveal a more vulnerable person. Alas the film does seem to run out of ideas. Marmai's character is not fleshed out in the same way and the film ends unsatisfactorily. I was left with the feeling that there had been no purpose to the movie, and surely that is one of the main purposes of most art house films? You will have to view it yourself to decide if I am right or wrong! It is a film that certainly has its moments, but one that will not linger long in my memory, which is of course the true acid test for a good film.

In a two-handed piece like this, it is important that each actor has the ability to deliver their character's message with equal conviction.
It is truly unfortunate for Pio Marmai that he is exposed to a breath-taking performance from Kristin Scott Thomas which completely over-shadows his own very competent one. It is impossible to take ones eyes off of Scott Thomas. Her performance is almost flawless
and is completely convincing. It lifts this small and rather hackneyed story of revenge to a higher level.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Kristen Scott-Thomas, that doyen of actresses who habitually play hard-faced, toffee-nosed, upper-class English aristos, here takes the role of an ex-pat Parisian doctor, randomly kidnapped by a man she doesn't appear to recognize and who gradually begins to gain some semblance of humility when it appears that the reasons for her abduction are those of revenge. The film starts brightly, with a flashback showing Thomas' character escaping from captivity and attempting to return to some kind of normality, while her colleagues chide her for not returning to work sooner; eventually contacting the police, what looks to be a straightforward story becomes more complicated when we see that she cannot give her kidnapper up - not just yet anyhow.
Scott-Thomas is an intense presence in any context, but here she takes that intensity to new levels, as she first berates her captor, then seems to fall prey to some kind of Stockholm syndrome. Her character is given little back-story, while that of her tormentor - an impressive Pio Marmai, is sketchy at best. Ultimately, although the film promises much, it delivers little, and feels slight and somewhat disappointing by the end.

This is one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. The acting was great, the dialogue captivating and the setup and environment in which the movie takes place was very intriguing. the child actresses were phenomenal and very convincing. And finally, the plot kept me on edge throughout the whole movie. Very well made!
