Aro Recommended Read My Lips


aka: Sur Mes Levres
France 2001, 120 minutes
Dir. Jacques Audiard
In French with English subtitles
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Suspense/Crime, Drama / Girl-centric


Aroview: Sturdy, unconventional French thriller about an insecure, partially-deaf office clerk who tries to help an irascible ex-con integrate back into society, only to become actively caught up in his criminal past.

Though slightly uneven through the fits and starts of their awkward relationship, this recovers in an exciting third act where the criminal plot clocks into high gear and the odd, decidedly unglamorous partnership gets the chemistry right.
