    Consistently fascinating partly because of the great casting, partly because of the nice, steady pace. No surprises, really...just pure Chabrol black all the way.

  1. Claude Chabrol's capacity to make shopworn material seem almost new is especially evident in this 2007 drama, which he cowrote with his stepdaughter, Cecile Maistre.

    Its impact is weakened by a limp ending and a sense that it all adds up to rather less than the sum of its parts.

    While not a classic, this is a pleasantly disturbing, nominally voyeuristic romp in the territory Chabrol knows best.
