Any film in which Isabelle Huppert is cast and then given absolutely nothing to do is a crime against cinema.

That crack cast still keeps things involving, especially Rapace's emotionally and physically disfigured Beatrice.

A pleasingly intricate double (or is it triple?) revenge plot anchored by excellent acting, with a terrific burst of action at the climax.
