Just weeks after its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, Lost in Frenchlation is proud to be bringing you our first French thriller on Friday 24th June, ‘Elle’, starring Isabelle Huppert in what has been called an Oscar-worthy performance!
‘Elle’ is Paul Verhoeven’s hugely popular comeback film after his break from directing box office hits like ‘Basic Instinct’. This rape-revenge thriller is an adaptation of Philippe Dijan’s provocative novel and is Verhoeven’s first French-language feature film which has already stirred up opinions within the press… “Whatever your take, it’s a film that will inspire debate for decades to come” – Time Out
“Michèle seems indestructible. Head of a successful video game company, she brings the same ruthless attitude to her love life as to business. Being attacked in her home by an unknown assailant changes Michèle’s life forever. When she resolutely tracks the man down, they are both drawn into a curious and thrilling game that may, at any moment, spiral out of control.”
