Chabrol's attempt to arouse sympathy for his heartless protagonist seemed a reach.

Huppert's baby-fat monster is a neat landmine of familial tensions, and Chabrol knows just how far to push it

Though the film tends to follow the trajectory of surface events and not delve deeper into either psychological motivations or historical influences, Chabrol's moody flourishes and storytelling tapestry are never less than mesmerizing.

Chabrol film about a teenage prostitute who kills her parents, based on real-life story. Mostly interesting for its atmosphere and for Huppert's acting.
