Film synopsis

From Academy Award-winning director Claude Lelouch (A Man And A Woman), this daring French psycho-thriller stars Fanny Ardant (Elizabeth, 8 Femmes) as a glamorous, best-selling crime novelist (Judith Ralitzer) whose ghost writer Pierre (the brilliant Dominique Pinon – Amelie, Betty Blue) emerges like a haunting character in one of her own novels. When Pierre meets Huguette (Audrey Dana), a high-strung hairdresser abandoned by her enraged fiance at a roadhouse, a bizarre relationship unfolds. But is Pierre really a writer, or a recently escaped serial killer? And will the pouting, celebrity-obsessed Judith soon have to contend with a ghost writer who wants to come out of his shadow? This is a game with high stakes – and deadly consequences!Described by The New York Times as a “thriller, a murder mystery and … literary puzzle”, the film’s superb cast, gorgeous French locations, and Lelouch’s veteran touch overlay a complex tapestry of mystery and romance.
