Fascinating film about a young sound engineer whose equipment "hears" into her mother's past.

French suoernatural . Dark and foreboding, enough to put you off that remote French holiday home

Les murs ont des oreilles... et une bouche visiblement ! Une jeune ingenieure du son ecoute les bruits du passe "enregistres" au fil du temps par la maison de sa mere "fraichement" assassinee, pour tenter d'elucider son meurtre. Situee dans une France profonde assez glauque (ambiance renforcee a l'image par du grain et une photographie sombre), une intrigue originale, sorte de declinaison rurale de "Blow out" de de Palma. La virtuosite en moins mais le climat se veut austere ici. Au rayon des reproches je releve surtout un changement abrupt de la nature de la relation entre E. Dequenne et M. Demy. Elle devient d'un coup plus familiere alors que quelques instants plus tot ils se connaissaient a peine. Ca sent les scenes coupees tentant de faire naitre une liaison ambigue entre les deux pour etoffer l'histoire sur le plan emotionnel...

A French ghost story, which would make it esoteric enough, but this is one in which the ghosts can only be heard, not seen. The method by which this occurs is clunky, but there is a spooky atmosphere that always seems to be underplaying itself instead of ramping up. The murder mystery plot unfolds well and the ending is subtle. It's quite French, this.

why am I watching so many French movies lately? A creepy detective story that I'm sure any music/audio major would love.. it's like The Ring meets White Noise.

Interesting French thriller about a girl who discovers she can listen to the past events in the house that her mother was murdered. It's a little slow to start, and more intriguing than tense, but definitely worth a watch.

Un suspense sans suspense...très Français. Bonne idée, mais si mal travaillé : trame sonore monotone, acteurs sans éclat, montage terne...oh well. Nice try! On finit quand même par l'écouter pour connaitre la fin...très Française.

I really dig the way this movie unfolds it's story- giving you seemingly random moments of it's characters and leaving it to you to assemble the narrative (as opposed to coming up with some convoluted way of bringing you up to speed). It's also a brilliant idea for a supernatural thriller, and perfectly suited for the medium of film.

I'm convinced the director didn't do his research as EVP is misrepresented in the film. A little boring but original.

Passable supernatural drama. Deliberate showing of the boom mic at regular intervals was annoying.

what happened? there was some great direction, great sound...but editing was awful. maybe the one i saw in glasgow wasnt a finished piece? but i saw the boom every other shot. given the nature of the plot, was that intentional? it didnt add to the film at all and was really irritating.

Better first half than second..
