The fifth arrondissement of Paris, if you were wondering.
Moody, pure atmosphere, and a plot twisted just so. Perhaps compares to 'Fatal Attraction' but with way more edge, squirm-factor.
With Ethan Hawke and Kristin Scott Thomas. Directed by Pawel Pawlikowski (My Summer of Love). Based on the novel by Douglas Kennedy.
In a few theaters or would make a good rental sometime. Something to cuddle up with. Really, there's nothing to dislike here.
A clip from the review by Manohla Dargis:
- "...this psychological thriller (or perhaps, psychothriller) about an American writer down on his luck in Paris and maybe out of his mind creates a sense of dread that builds and builds though never resolves, even in the final fade out."
