Great (french) movie directed by Denis Dercourt

If you have the chance don't miss it

This is a somber and elegant film less rich in detail than My Children Are Different but more intensely focused. While My Children was a coming-of-age story with a dark look into familial musical ambitions and their toll on children, this is a flat-out psychological revenge thriller, but completely set in a musical world.

I was intested in this one. I'll have to give it a watch.

btw- there's another French movie I want to see. It's called 'La.Vie.En.Rose' and it's a movie about the life of Edith Pilaf.

I watched it two nights ago. Terrific film. So many movie similar to this one take the low road and go overthetop. This film had a nice pace where her plan could be played out like an artists painting a picture.

Btw- The blonde actress with quietly stunning. Her eyes reminded me of Natalie Portman's.

if you enjoyed "La Tourneuse" I can recommend another (french) movie in the same genre : "Harry un ami qui vous veut du bien" (2000)

excellent piece of entertainment in the cinema of menace genre. Ordinary guy Michel (Laurent Lucas), hot and bothered while taking his family on a summer vacation, meets up with Harry, a former schoolfriend (Sergi Lopez), who he doesn't remember, and who seems to be both rich and very solicitous of his welfare. When the family car breaks down, Harry buys them a new four-wheel drive (it seems that even the French have not escaped the sports utility craze). Clearly, there is something not healthy about Harry's interest but it takes a while for the real story to emerge, and there are some carefully observed and funny moments on the way.

It has been pointed out, and there are certainly signs, that Harry can be seen as the embodiment of some of Michel's darker feelings, particularly the feeling that the everyday demands of family life and work have prevented him from developing his talent as a writer. Michel also has a certain amount of resentment towards his parents, but the character of Harry grossly overreacts to Michel's `enemies' and in the end, of course it is Harry, the psychotic in all of us, who has to go.

The immediacy of the camera work puts us right in the picture, heightening the tension. There are a couple of scenes inside cars being driven on narrow mountain roads at night as scary as anything Hitchcock (obviously an influence on first-time director Dominik Moll) attempted, and the nearly 2 hours of running time passes very quickly. Great entertainment.

I already started looking for it. It may prove harder to find. But I'm sure I'll watch it soon. Thanks for the recommendation.
