Movie Info

The internationally produced The Lacemaker (La Dentelliere) stars Isabelle Huppert as Pomme, a meek and mild French beautician whose life takes a fateful turn during a vacation to Normandy. Here Huppert becomes the lover of middle-class literature-student Francois (Yves Beneyton). The relationship sours when Francois takes her home to meet his parents, thanks in no small part to their differing social backgrounds. The Lacemaker was the film that solidified the stardom of Isabelle Huppert; she was showered with awards, most notably the British Film Academy. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovimore

Isabelle Huppert's performance as a prety, tongue-tied girl who can't verbally express her feelings is the best reason to see this French film.

Audience Reviews for The Lacemaker (La Dentelliere)

The young Isabelle plays Pomme, who has become an iconic character over the years. The book is just as tragic.

it's amazing that such simple plot and scene would bring out this great unexpected impact. Isabella Huppert, no doubt, is a super great actress.
