Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As a secretary, Carla Behm (Emmanuelle Devos — Winner "Best Actress" 2002 Cesar Awards) is overqualified despite a disability that forces her to wear hearing aids in both ears. Still, her coworkers ridicule her daily for her plain looks, all the while taking credit for her best work. She's on the verge of cracking until she gets permission to hire an assistant. Enter Paul Angeli (Vincent Cassel — Crimsons Rivers, Birthday Girl). He's a suave, light-fingered ex-con unqualified for the simplest of tasks. However, when it comes time to steal a file a co-worker has pilfered from Carla's desk, Paul has all the skills that Carla requires. Soon he discovers Carla's uncanny ability to read lips, and their relationship becomes a seductive tango as Paul enlists Carla in a revenge plot against a crooked loan shark. A masterfully crafted romantic thriller in the Hitchcock tradition, Read My Lips won Best Screenplay at the 2002 Cesar Awards. See what Lisa Schwarzbaum (Entertainment Weekly) calls, "An expert, refreshingly complex thriller."

I saw this film several years ago in a small theater in Providence, RI, and was stunned at the incredible diversity of influences displayed in the film. It draws you into the lives of the characters so thoroughly that you'll not look at other people quite the same way again.
