Read My Lips (Sur mes lèvres)
Author/Director: Jacques Audiard
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 theverge 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 againsta crooked loan shark.
