Elle L'Adore (15)


Muriel Bayen, a divorced beautician and mother of two, loves to tell stories. She is a huge fan of this singer Vincent Lacroix, in fact she is a dedicated fan. One day Vincent knock on her door and ask for her help.

The critical consensus

A subtle, laugh-out-loud film with more unexpected twists than prime Hitchcock. Absolutely superb, and one that keeps the audience on their toes right up to the end.

*****Lorna Irvine, Across the Arts, 25/02/2015

Sandrine Kiberlain plays an obsessive, near-stalker fan of singer Vincent Lacroix in this black comedy-thriller that deserves a bigger audience.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 12/03/2015

Alas, while writer/director Jeanne Herry – the daughter of French crooner Julien Cler and actress Miou-Miou – has fun exploring the dynamic between idoliser and idol, too often she lets the film’s preposterous plotting get in the way of saying anything fresh about celebrity and its nose-against-the-glass allure.

***(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 14/03/2015

This is enjoyably twisty nonsense, the Hitchcockian plot delivering a few unexpected inversions, its sinewy stalker-themes elegantly unpicked by impressive first time co-writer/director Jeanne Herry.
