The stunning Isabella Adjani plays Elle, a provocative and extremely feisty nineteen year old who returns to her home Provencal village with her crippled father and German mother. The normally sleepy village is jolted by her arrival, especially the menfolk who are mesmerised by her looks, and Elle is not shy of all the attention.
Gradually her true personality and purpose emerges. A master manipulater, she manages to turn friend against friend and brother against brother, until the film reaches it’s violent conclusion and Elle’s dark secret is discovered, a life shattering event nineteen years earlier.
Isabelle Adjani gives one of her best ever performances in Jean Becker’s gripping thriller packed with mesmerising twists and turns.
