  • Directed by: Paul Verhoeven
  • Cast: Isabelle Huppert, Christian Berkel, Anne Consigny

Michele (Huppert) is a successful, middle-aged video games producer who, when raped by a violent intruder, doesn't report the assault but behaves as though nothing has happened. Verhoeven's dark character drama features an astonishing, multi-layered central performance from Huppert and its treatment of sexual violence is challenging and audacious.
