Nominated for the 2018 BAFTA for Film Not in the English Language. Isabelle Huppert plays Michéle Leblanc, the CEO of a video games company, who is assaulted in her home. But this being a film by one of contemporary cinema's arch-provocateurs, Paul Verhoeven, what follows is something entirely unexpected. Unwilling to play the victim, Michéle opts for a different stance, choosing to track down her attacker. In the hands of a lesser actor Michéle might not convince, but Huppert, who received an Oscar nomination for her performance, invests the role with a moral complexity that adds to the uniqueness of this compelling and occasionally unsettling film. ★★★★★ "Paul Verhoeven's richest, most complex, and troubling film yet" - Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent ★★★★★ "Teases the viewer with its every double-edged frame" - Alexandra Helle-Nicholas, Little White Lies ★★★★★ "A shocker not to be missed" - David Sexton, Evening Standard ★★★★★ "No other actor could have pulled it off" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
