A good movie

At last, after 10 long years, Paul Verhoeven finally came up with a new directing effort and I was really eager to check it out . Eventually, I'm not sure if the other members of my film club really liked it but I thought it was another strong thriller from the Dutch master. Obviously, the critics won't miss the fact that it was rather misogynist as the women seem to almost enjoy to be brutalized ... read more

There´s a peculiar she and a generic she (la somme de toutes les vulnerabilités d'une femme avec pouvoir) in this ambitious thriller. Huppert is convincing because she is a bit 'elle'.

The thorniest, iciest character study I’ve seen in quite some time, and that isn’t a criticism. Elle is provocative material played with intelligence and chilling lack of emotional pity or yearning for sympathy. Talking about it feels like trying to navigate a minefield.   Isabelle Huppert’s Michèle Leblanc is a woman who refuses to be defined by the men in her life, or the tragedies an... read more

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-a game that may, at any moment, spiral out of control.

“The thorniest, iciest character study I’ve seen in quite some time, and that isn’t a criticism. Elle is provocative material played with intelligence and chilling lack of emotional pity or yearning for sympathy. Talking about it feels like trying to navigate a minefield.   Isabelle Huppert’s Michèle Leblanc is a woman who refuses to be defined by the men in her life, or the tragedies and traumas that they inflect upon her. It begins with her father committing a mass murder when she was ten-years-old, and how she refuses to even acknowledge his existence or allow his presence, his crimes, or the trauma he thrust upon her as defining characteristics of her life. It follows up with the opening sexual assault, and her eventual twisted relationship and revenge games with her attacker” read more

Predicting the Winners of the 2017 Oscars (21 movies items)

"And the nominees are... *Isabelle Huppert- Elle *Ruth Negga- Loving *Natalie Portman- Jackie *Emma Stone- La La Land *Meryl Streep- Florence Foster Jenkins And the Oscar goes to... After taking the Globe, SAG, and BAFTA, Stone is in the top spot here. There's a lot of love for La La Land, and that will be shown off once again here. The only one that I think could get her is Huppert; she's been acting for a long time, is just now getting respect, and foreign actresses have surprised here bef"

My Movie Diary 2017 (154 movies items)

"18 January. Paul Verhoeven directs this French movie with Isabelle Huppert as a victim of a house invasion and rape comes to terms with her experience. Not that effective as a whodunnit, but there are a lot of interesting elements in the story that magnifies the central role, making it a character to remember, and thus earning praises for Huppert."

30 Favorite Films of 2016 (30 movies items)

"When developing into a serious cinephile around 13 or so, I came across Isabelle Huppert and was immediately taken by her. Blown away by her performance in The Piano Teacher, which is legendary when it comes to screen performances, I sought out all of her films, and discovered it was damn near impossible that she could ever put out a bad performance or even a mediocre one. In short, I love the woman, and Elle is Huppert at the peak of her powers. Who would think Huppert and Paul Verhoeven would "
