The price of fame and the cost of fandom come crashing together in some amusingly suspenseful ways in Elle l'adore, the debut feature from French actress-turned-director Jeanne Herry.
This drily comic French thriller marks the feature debut of writer-director Jeanne Herry, whose deceptively calm surfaces and psychologically nuanced characterizations prove her a worthy student of Claude Chabrol.
A clever example of mainstream French cinema from the daughter of Miou-Miou and Julien Clerc.
An elegant, disturbing movie.
Sandrine Kiberlain shines in this pacy, Paris-set and just-silly-enough thriller.
...a character study of a young woman who is more disturbed than she seems at first glance...
Despite the promising yet contrived scenario, Elle L'Adore has too many component parts. It's a shaggy dog story which doesn't add up to a lot.
Herry fails spectacularly to nail the inherent comedy of the situations, which maddeningly come across as internalized misogyny over all else.
First-time director Jeanne Herry delivers a sardonic comedy propelled by spot-on performances in Elle l'adore.
Films about obsessive fandom tend to home in on the psychopathic nature of the follower, but this French comedy/drama turns things around by making the object of a fan's love the exploitative monster.
Egged on by a swirling piano score that cranks up the melodramatic tension, this is enjoyably twisty nonsense ...
Well played, especially by Sandrine Kiberlain, but Jeanne Henry's film lacks consistency to be great.
