Claud Chabrol himself would have surely admired this elegant, disturbing and darkly comic suspense thriller from France. Vincent Lacroix is a veteran superstar ‘chanteur’, living a cosseted, celebrity life in Paris but doggedly pursued by Muriel, a sad and obsessive fantasist who has been his biggest fan since her teenage years. When Vincent gets into a terrible jam, he realises there is only one person he can turn to for help.

There are a myriad of twists and turns and Herry never once loses you, as you remain completely captivated and intrigued as to how this tale will conclude.
Stefan Pape (HeyUGuys)
