An innocent looking beauty uses her deceptively timid appearance to destroy the lives of strangers and friends alike in director Michel Spinosa's portrait of one woman's shocking descent into self-destruction. Despite the fact that Anna (Isabelle Carré) always appears calm and collected on the outside, beneath her skin boils a simmering cauldron of delusion and despair.

A decent Parisian thriller that rides on the tails of a calling-card turn from Isabelle Carré as a lovelorn stalker-cum-social-menace who falls in love with her doctor.
Isabelle Carré is superb as Anna, but the problem is the tone. Caught between psychological study and thriller, it aims for both - but achieves neither.
Isabelle Carré brings a raw emotion to this French language film that elevates it from a so-so psychological drama to something deeply chilling.
The sheer ferocity of the central performance in this French psychological drama from writer-director Michel Spinosa is what saves it from being slightly one-dimensional.
With a strong performance from Isabelle Carré, Anna M. is an entertaining film, but it is also confused and slight, and like its anti-heroine, is in need of a firmer grip on reality.
Writer-director Michel Spinosa, harnessing a powerhouse central performance from Carré, has managed to hit the ground between giddy Hollywood thriller and brooding arthouse character piece.
For a film that presents itself as a case-study, Anna M has no trouble in chucking plausibility out of the window - would she really get a job as a nanny with that loony smile and no references? - and suffers from a mystifying and unsatisfactory ending.
Dodgy chapter titles and a ridiculous ending only confirm the impression that you're watching the art project of a second-year psychology student.
