The result is disappointing, though not as much as the fact that we never see Scott Thomas in juicy roles like this in Britain.
Scott Thomas and Marmai are both fine in a film that could almost be a theatrical two-hander but the plot just doesn't hold water.
Scott Thomas rules the roost if we're looking at inner burn, at the fury that always seems to be snacking on her marrow.
A short but insightful exploration of inverse Stockholm syndrome, loneliness and loss.
In Your Hands showcases of one of this country's most remarkable screen performers, a vividly intelligent presence - but it does not quite work.
Kristin Scott Thomas impresses, but the third act turns everything to mush.
The end is abrupt and not entirely satisfactory, but it's a convincingly performed and constantly intriguing film.
The film generates some interest by fragmenting the narrative structure but it's really a potboiler without much heat.
The two leads deliver powerful performances and as their relationship develops, the film asks intelligent questions about loneliness, anger and revenge.
With performers less compelling than Kristin Scott Thomas and Pio Marmaï, it could have turned out both drab and offensive - but their joint commitment to their flawed, edgy characters creates a fierce momentum.
At a taut 81 mins, this crisply shot two-hander is further proof of how modern French cinema consistently allows Scott Thomas opportunities to excel in psychologically challenging roles.
In Your Hands is an intriguing, emotionally complex drama with a terrific central performance from Kristin Scott Thomas, but it's also frustratingly slow in the middle section and it's difficult to engage with the characters.
