Review
Judge Jeanne Charmant Killman is assigned the job of investigating a high-profile case of corruption and embezzlement at a giant state supported company. As her investigation gathers momentum, Killman uncovers an immense scandal reaching into the upper echelons of government, but the more she uncovers the more powerful she becomes; Killman is about to discover the unpleasant price of power's intoxicating grip. A fine psychological thriller from Chabrol with Huppert in typically impressive form as the increasingly compromised Judge.
