Crime/ drama Deneuve is the jeweller's wife who takes over her husband's business after his death only to find that he has been keeping a mistress (Seigner). Not that Deneuve's past is entirely spotless either: she's been known to smuggle the odd diamond. In an attempt to protect her company from predators, she teaches Seigner how to generate some extra income - by smuggling of course. A cool thriller without too many thrills but which is hypnotically watchable as Deneuve moulds young Seigner into her look-alike. Deneuve and Seigner in a classy French thriller - what more can you ask?
