Paul Ver­ho­even’s first French-lan­guage fea­ture has left some crit­ics speech­less, some con­fused, and most in rap­ture. Reel­ing from a rape by a masked at­tacker, a high-pow­ered CEO calmly re­sumes her life in un­ex­pected ways, chal­leng­ing and in­di­vid­u­al­iz­ing the ex­pe­ri­ence of sex­ual as­sault. This rape-re­venge fantasy com­edy pre­miered at Cannes and makes its way to Hong Kong be­fore its gen­eral re­lease.
