Dir. Jacques Audiard (2001).
Emmanuelle Devos won a Cesar for her portrayal of a deaf office-worker and her fiercely telegraphed disapproval gives Jacques Audiard’s character-driven thriller much of its kick—particularly once she hires a newly paroled ex-con (Vincent Cassel) as an assistant. The two become complicit; the big question is how far into illegality they’ll push this mutual use.
