Besides the unconvincing shift of psychic gears, the picture has no theme, no resonance, no point.
January 1, 2000
A mildly intriguing effort that pokes about on the dark side but never really bites.

Watching the film, you think maybe you know where it's headed. Or maybe not. Not every ceremony ends in the way we anticipate.

Arguably Chabrol and Huppert's finest joint effort, it matches Huppert with Sandrine Bonnaire as a disgruntled postal clerk and sinister housekeeper.

As the movers and shakers of this peculiar saga, Bonnaire and Huppert are unnerving and fascinating to watch together.

Chabrol's most accomplished and popular movie in decades.
