MINOR SPOILERS

This is a very good suspenseful film with many good plot twists. The standard of acting is consistently good. I am surprised at how evil the boss is though! Honestly, the things she does are unbelievable! Definitely the worst fictional boss ever!

More like a crime born of humiliation. Certainly worth watching as it is intriguing with a twist in the tail. The acting is solid, the corporate backdrop suitably minimalist and functional, not to mention scheming. Script is pretty good. Tension evident. Not bad at all, although a little more info on the past of the humiliated half wouldn't have gone amiss.

Clever and well paced, and a compelling watch thanks in no small part to the performances of the two leading ladies uptight Ludivine Sagnier and ice cold Kristin Scott Thomas. The scenes between these two are electric. Well worth a look.

Cleverly constructed plot line - Kristin Scott-Thomas plays a great part as the boss everyone loves to hate. Kept me absorbed to the end and unlike some French films, it wasn't overly long, but well paced. Recommended.

A really good film with both actresses in top form, a really good performance from Ludivine Sagnier (she does get better with every film she does) and Scott Thomas does project the image of the lesbian themed controlling boss. A real twist at the end...but a very gory one.
When you see this film...you will not want to get on the wrong side of...Ludivine Sagnier.

A very good film, watchable and a good buy.

Ingenious and well-acted French psychological thriller. The two lead actors, Segnier and Scott Thomas, are very watchable and the story will keep you guessing. However, at the end I couldn't help thinking that the film plot (and the "scheme" in the story) were unnecessarily complicated. As with many thrillers, afterwards you say to yourself: "Hang on a minute...Why...." etc. But it's still way ahead of other films of its kind.

The story line could have been tighter, the film lacks energy and the pace wanders. Some of the characters aren't that believable particularly when they about face towards the end. Overall a reasonable watch on a slow Sunday evening.

-------- spoiler alert------

This classy, twisty, slow, French thriller, stars Kristin Scott Thomas as Christine Rivière a Paris-based business executive with an eye on a top job in New York. Rivière "mentors" the wall-flowerish plain-Jane Isabelle Guérin (Sagnier) and the relationship blossoms; initially into a love affair and then all-out corporate rivalry, as the predatory, cold, Christine begins to resent Isabelle's success and Isabelle wishes to step out of her mentor's shadow......ah, big business.

This initial part of the film is slow and the corporate world shown is ridiculously superficial, however, the focus is on the development of the relationship and rivalry between the two women, which is great. Both the female leads are excellent in their own different ways and nobody does sexy and cold like KST.

The film then switches gear, with a murder, to which Isabelle confesses, however, as the story is revealed, it becomes clearer that all is not what it seems.

Whether the film could have been sustained for its entire length by the initial premise of the two women's no-holds barred rivalry, is open to debate. I personally think it could given just how much time had been invested in developing the characters, however, the second half provides lots of fun trying to piece together the twists and clues, given in flashbacks...did you spot them?

The ending could be seen as either somewhat Shakespearean, poetic justice or a cop-out, depending on your view.

This is typically stylish piece of French film making and the cinematography is fabulous. Recommended.
