From the producer of the acclaimed "The Page Turner" comes a riveting, nail-biting journey into the obsession and jealousy. Divorced mother Elsa Valentins (Catherine Frot) life is fraught with tension, fighting for her son in a bitter custody battle and juggling a demanding job. But nothing can prepare for what happens when she crosses paths with Lola, a young girl whom she believes to be the daughter she lost in a hospital fire over six years ago. Unable to let go of the desperate hope that her daughter might still be alive, Elsa begins to ingratiate herself with Lolas own mother Claire (Sandrine Bonnaire) inching her way into Lolas life. At the expense of her own increasingly distraught family, Elsas obsession heightens and her behaviour turns increasingly disturbing. But how far will she go for what only she believes is the unsettling truth? Based on an incredible true story.
Thought this was a wonderful film with high quality acting.
Angel of Mine
This is a gripping movie, well edited and well cast. It's French with English subtitles. The actors play this very subtly and there are scenes of everyday events and sometimes, flashbacks. The ending isn't a cop out either. I really enjoyed it.
I sometimes find French films to be dull, this however has an excellent story with a twist. Pleasantly surprised.
