Could any other actress have pulled this off? Isabelle Huppert is utterly riveting and simply sensational in this sly and scathing social critique. Huppert plays Michele Leblanc, a successful Parisian career woman who is determined not to be defined by the men in her life. When she is attacked at home by a masked intruder she appears to shrug it off. She doesn't report it to the police, but goes about her business, seemingly as though nothing had happened. When she is contacted by her attacker, a game of cat and mouse starts, as it becomes clear that she wants to track him down and has revenge on her mind. But this isn’t just a revenge noir, there is the delectable undercurrent of Gallic social satire – a nightmare Christmas dinner rivals Abigail’s Party! With a deft script and terrific supporting cast, what a mad, gripping, wild, provocative, funny, dark film Elle is!
