About the Movie

Michèle seems indestructible. Head of a successful video game company, she brings the same ruthless attitude to her love life as to business. Being attacked in her home by an unknown assailant changes Michèle's life forever. When she resolutely tracks the man down, they are both drawn into a curious and thrilling game that may, at any moment, spiral out of control.

Worth seeing for her performance

Not easy subject matter, but like Nocturnal Animals, certainly leaves you thinking about the human psyche. Isabelle Hubbert's performance was incredible - nuanced, seductive, and frightening in its depth. Certainly makes a statement on misogyny, and how women respond to it.

Should have gone straight to VHS.

This was pathetic. Without question the worst movie I have ever seen. Quite possibly the worst movie ever made. If I paid 5 cents for this I would still want a refund. I held out hope thinking there would be a payoff in the end for having to suffer through this, but I was wrong. There was no payoff. The ending was just as pathetic as the rest of the movie. If you enjoy feeling less than human, a bit less intelligent for having watched, then you may enjoy it.


Amazing acting. Great twist st end. Kept me on the edge of my seat.
