Wondering why times are missing?


From France comes this sharp drama/comedy about a bourgeois husband and wife who stumble across a young streetwalker being beaten by some thugs. The husband doesn't want to get involved and drives on. Haunted by the incident, however, the wife hunts down the young girl in the hospital and dedicates herself to the girl's rehabilitation. Eventually our middle-class heroine decides to dump her self-serving family and help her newly adopted charge go looking for revenge. A refreshing and original film mixing black comedy, crime drama, social criticism and feminist revenge fantasy. 109 minutes
