This acclaimed and emotionally taut thriller stars Déborah François as Mélanie, a young woman whose love of music turns in a passion for revenge. Self-possessed and coolly calculating, Melanie finds work as the personal page turner of the well-known concert pianist Ariane Foucherot (Catherine Frot).

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.Read more ›
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.
