Carla works in a real estate office and has a hearing problem. Carla makes the acquaintance of Paul, a small-time criminal who has just been released from prison on parole. Before long, it becomes obvious that Paul is having an influence on Carla's normally stable nature. Carla and Paul's actions go from malicious to seriously criminal when Paul hatches a scheme to rob a nightclub owner to whom he owes money -- a scheme that involves Carla's keen skill as a lip reader.

Emmanuelle Devos is a secretarial Cinderella who pursues not a prince, but her assistant, a convict who looks like a tom cat left out in the rain. Whatever you think this film will be like, I can almost guarantee you're wrong, except if you think it will be very French. There are elements that are supposed to be funny and charming, and I guess they are, in a way. But it's also a violent film noir, a caper film, and a psychological drama, similar to the films of Claude Chabrol. The two young protagonists turn from sympathetic and emotional to icily calculating on a dime. Personally, I couldn't help rooting for these crazy kids.

Excellent movie. Emmanuelle Devos is very good as a woman hard of hearing who helps a paroled convict recently hired at the office she works in.
