Directed by Jacques Rivette
Rivette dissects the thriller genre, focusing attention on the small moments
that invariably define the bigger ones. Sandrine Bonnaire (Joan the Maid)
stars as a research scientist who learns that her father's death might not
have been an accident. She sets out on mission of revenge. "Rivette's 20th
feature is perhaps the most classically constructed of all his films...the
brooding intimations of Greek tragedy are part of what keeps this 170-minute
thriller fascinating throughout" (Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader).
