WINNER OF 2 GOLDEN GLOBES:

BEST FOREIGN FILM & BEST ACTRESS: ISABELLE HUPPERT!

The opening scene of “Elle” is a shocker: a brutal sexual assault filmed with pitiless detachment. Everything that follows is, in some ways, even more shocking, as the movie — a masterpiece of suave perversity, directed by Paul Verhoeven — leads its audience through a meticulously constructed maze of ambiguity, scrambling our assumptions and expectations at every turn. After it’s over, you may find yourself in an argument about just what kind of movie you saw. It’s a psychological thriller, a strangely dry-eyed melodrama, a kinky sex farce and, perhaps most provocatively, a savage comedy of bourgeois manners.

Mostly, though it is a platform for the astonishing, almost terrifying talent of Isabelle Huppert. Ms. Huppert, onscreen for virtually every second, gives “Elle” much of its fascination and most of its coherence. She has the unrivaled ability to fuse contradictory traits and actions into a singular, complex and endlessly interesting personality. The movie’s title is succinct and comprehensive. It’s all about her. --The New York Times
“Elle” is both an impeccably Gallic delicacy and a gleeful parody of Frenchness. The New York Times
Cast Isabelle Huppert, Laurent Lafitte, Anne Consigny
