Aro Recommended Elle


France 2016, 126 minutes
Dir. Paul Verhoeven
Rating: [R18] Violence, sexual violence & offensive language.
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Drama, Suspense/Crime / Sex, Controversy


“Huppert has always been good, but she’s never been better than this. Often shocking, surprisingly funny and strangely powerful, this is intense and fascinating.”~Helen O'Hara, Empire

Aroview: Controversial, unflinching drama closely following the perspective of a woman who is repeatedly raped by the same masked intruder, but whose unexpected reactions (observed in a stunning performance by Huppert) eschew the traits of victimhood, instead presenting a heroine both strong and psychologically complex.

Presented in what has become Verhoeven's signature style, a provocative mix of glamour, violence, nail-biting suspense and the blackest of humour - unpalatable or thrilling depending on your taste.
