This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. A good little thriller which has already been remade by Brian Depalma as 'Passion' and whose version I am sure will contain a lot more sex and style.That is not meant in any way to be detrimental to what we have here. Kristin Scott Thomas (always classy) and Ludivine Sagnier are both great as the sparring work colleagues. Friends, and enemies by turn, they are fascinating to watch as the fabric of their relationship unravels. The first hour of the film is compelling and one is engaged in a story that promises more than it ultimately delivers. Events become more puzzling and rather unsatisfactory however, following the demise of Scott Thomas. All along we know what the denouement will be, but the film is so long winded in getting there that a loss of interest is inevitable. The black and white inter cuts do a good job of clarifying things in the second half and the final scene ends on a high. Expand

This is an odd little movie - much like a TV procedural - but with the absolute worst "fill-in" details surrounding their workplace. They might as well have just referred to everything as widgets and every "other" person a Joe Bloggs. It was laughable- in fact, the crowd did a lot of laughing in this film. But I have a feeling the filmmakers were laughing with us when they wrote and directed it. I had fun - just don't take it too seriously. Expand

I have not seen a French film in years that I liked. At least this one is tolerable, though unbelievable; what the characters say and do did not touch me any in away. At least this time I did not FFWD through as I as waiting for the resolve,I have not seen a French film in years that I liked. At least this one is tolerable, though unbelievable; what the characters say and do did not touch me any in away. At least this time I did not FFWD through as I as waiting for the resolve, the exposure, the truth. But has been said by better, "you can't handle the truth" which is, many French films are over rated. Perhaps there is a certain gene I am missing. Not worth my time but not as bad as the usual French output that gets outstanding American reviews. Collapse

I adore Kristin Scott Thomas and cannot recall ever seeing her in a movie this bad. Her archly self-serving queen bee character -- even though she does it well -- is one you've seen before. Her antagonist and the whole supporting cast areI adore Kristin Scott Thomas and cannot recall ever seeing her in a movie this bad. Her archly self-serving queen bee character -- even though she does it well -- is one you've seen before. Her antagonist and the whole supporting cast are nondescript, as is their vague line of work. Makes me want to rewatch "I've Loved You So Long" just to see again how wonderful KST can be. Expand
