Storyline

Laura Bartelli is a stripper in a French bar. She retires after a moody landscape architect named Marco Tisserand asks her to abandon her life and share his. However, after her red Volkswagen runs off the road en route to the rendezvous, she ends up scarred and comatose in a hospital. Marco stays at her bedside. After some months, she awakens in a world of silence and gradually begins her new life with Marco, which is filled with affection and tenderness. She begins to love herself as much as she loves Marco. They have a son, Jeannot. Laura's deafness is more an irritation than an impediment and six years pass in family harmony. However, when Jeannot displays an unusual dysfunction at school, she goes to see a psychologist in Lyon, and shows a photograph of her son with his father. The psychologist recognizes Marco as a former university student colleague and tells her that he is a doctor a doctor with a past and even darker intentions for her and their child.

If a body lifts a body ...
17 November 2003 | by writers_reignSee all my reviews

This is one of those semi-intelligent movies based on a shaky premise.It begins in a strip club where the MC announces that the star stripper is leaving. Somewhat improbably and against the advice of her best friend she is leaving to marry a nerd who is as much at home in that environment as a butterfly in a cess pit. Leaving the club for the last time she runs her car off the road and wakes up in hospital with nerdy at her bedside and still more than prepared to marry her despite a series of horrible scars and the loss of her hearing. He moves her into his imposing house set within its own grounds and for the first time in her life she is happy. Careful and cynical observers will smell a rat when she invites her friend to stay, gives hubby the invite to post and he tears it up. Next clue: a few years later; their son has a penchant for sitting down to pee. A teacher contacts the mother who makes an appointment with a local hospital. One of the doctors claims to have studied with her husband - who is a landscape architect according to his CV. From then there is only one way to go and all we need to know is, does it deliver. Answer: Yes. Once you force yourself to ignore the stupidity - i.e. with her suspicions well and truly aroused and after enlisting the help of her best friend from the strip club, why would our heroine LEAVE the best friend in town and return alone to Chateau Weird? But these are minor beefs. All in all a very creditable thriller in the tradition of Les Diaboliques.
