Benoît Jacquot adapts the lurid 1945 James Hadley Chase novel previously brought to the screen by Joseph Losey in 1962, with Jeanne Moreau and Stanley Baker. Gaspard Ulliel is a hot young playwright with a potentially career-destroying skeleton in his closet, if his appetite for risk-taking doesn't do the job first. Isabelle Huppert is the mysterious call-girl with whom he begins a series of meetings, initially for "research" purposes but increasingly for more dangerous games of cat and mouse.
