This is a riveting, at times disturbing film that may burn a little too slowly for some, but it kept me gripped and uncomfortable throughout, in no small part thanks to Frédéric Noirhomme's stunning cinematography. Thomas Blanchard and the ever- dependable Nathalie Baye are simply superb. The twist at the very end of the film is so sublimely understated, yet so shocking, it totally undermines the comfortable prejudices that the film lures you into. Highly recommended!
