Description

Elle France/Germany 130 mins “Rich in ambiguities and resonant overtones, the film is not only consistently compelling but pleasingly thought-provoking.” – Sight & Sound When the CEO of a company specialising in violent video games is brutally raped during a home invasion, she goes about her daily business as if nothing has happened. Deciding not to report the crime, she instead embarks on a cat-and-mouse pursuit of her assailant – a dangerous game that will feed her own sadomasochistic desires. The latest film by Dutch provocateur Paul Verhoeven (Basic Instinct, Starship Troopers), Elle is a perverse, psychologically complex and sometimes surprisingly funny film that won huge critical acclaim at this year’s Cannes Film Festival – not least for Isabelle Huppert’s mesmerising performance as the film’s hard-as-nails protagonist.
