France | 1983 | col | dir. Jean Becker, with Isabelle Adjani, Alain Souchon, Suzanne Flon

Isabelle Adjani stars as Elle, a beautiful, moody and extremely feisty nineteen-year- old who returns to hometown in Provence to look after her ailing father and German mother. Initially, her arousing presence shakes up the usually quiet village, enthralling the young men; one, Pin Pon in particular. Using a shifting voice-over narration, an elaborate psychosexual mystery is woven which slowly uncovers Elle’s obsessions and her manipulative streak.
