Magistrate Jeanne Charmant-Killman (Huppert) investigates a fraud case and can't resist dipping her toe into corruption. Impressive satirical thriller directly inspired by Affaire Elf, a financial scandal in France in 1998 in which a top magistrate openly investigated some very powerful oil businessmen and seemed to be getting off on it. Fascinating stuff, Huppert as ever is brilliant.
