Aro Recommended Secret Defense


France 1998, 170 minutes
Dir. Jacques Rivette
In French with English subtitles
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Suspense/Crime


Aroview: A Hitchcockian thriller in which dir. Rivette, better known for his surreal excursions, knowingly toys with the conventions of the suspense genre, producing a steely drama of family and corporate intrigue.

Sandrine Bonnaire plays a scientist whose brother persuades her that their father, who died five years previously, was actually murdered by his business partner. Though slowly paced, this develops its own satisfying atmosphere of perilous and murky events.
