Lucie (Scott Thomas) is a bored, middle-class French housewife whose affluent surgeon husband Paul (Auteuil) seems to be being stalked by a young woman (Bekhti) who claims that he saved her life. Despite excellent performances and a convincing milieu, a bizarre and improbable twist in the plot undoes much of Claudel's careful work.
