France, 1982
Directed by Joseph Losey
Starring Isabelle Huppert, Jean-Pierre Cassel, Jeanne Moreau
Based on the book by Roger Vailland
Approx. 103 min. DCP restoration.


"Huppert is the trout, a cold fish who swims by herself, not needing much from anyone, tending to attract predators but equipped with very sharp teeth. She wears a T-shirt which has 'Maybe' on the front, but has 'Never' on the back, and 'It's all the same to me' is her key (indeed her exit) line. The film recounts the fate of several mostly disagreeable characters who fail to read the warning signs. Losey's penultimate film is one of his most assured, depicting with unusual objectivity the impact of a type of personality met with in life from time to time, but not often in the movies. From the novel by Roger Vailland." – Time Out
