"This little known french film is no masterpiece, but those who choose to watch it will certainly enjoy themselves. Sandrine Kiberlain, most fragile and adorable, gives a lovely performance as the housewife who resorts to shoplifiting as a cry for help. She is met by a hypnotist who treats her. The hypnosis scenes are most enchanting, and Kiberlain is very lovely while "under", giving out more content to thesubject of a woman easily influenced in her acting, than in the script itself.Vincent Lindon is well supporing as the husband who finds himself "betrayed" by his woman, who allowes someone else deep inside her mind, where he has never been.Even if the script and the directing is conservative, the acting justifies buying this small pleasing picture."
