Elle (2017, France/Germany/Belgium) Cert. 18

Monday 8 May 2017 at 7:30 pm - 9:50 pm

Director: Paul Verhoeven
Stars: Isabelle Huppert, Laurent Lafitte, Anne Consigny, Charles Berling

IS this our first ‘extra screening’ of a Cert. 18 film?

Michèle (Huppert, Oscar-nominated) is the head of a leading video game company, and brings a hard-headed attitude to both her personal and business lives.

The film opens – sound-track only – with Michèle attacked in her home by a maked assailant.  At first she seems little affected by an incident others might find traumatising.  But following further intrusions into her privacy Michèle resolves to track her attacker down, with unforeseen consequences for family, friends, work colleages and her own private life …

Verhoeven’s trademark direction casts an unsettling spell, varying the mood from scene to scene, in this widely praised, “electrifying and provocative comeback” (The Guardian).


At the time of publication of this page Elle had not been released in the UK, so our regular Review link is to The Guardian written at the time of the film’s debut at Cannes 2016.

That review does not include a link to any trailer (although there is a link to an interview with the star). 

The subsequent US release “official” Trailer, can be seen below – viewer advisory, the trailer gets an “R” rating – this IS Verhoeven and IS an 18 in the UK… [fvplayer src=”https://youtu.be/gM96ne-XiH0″]
