Read My Lips. 2001. France. Directed by Jacques Audiard. In French; English subtitles. 115 min.

Carla (Emmanuelle Devos), a lonely, hearing-impaired secretary, and Paul (Vincent Cassel), a slippery ex con, make an unlikely duo in this unique thriller. Audiard and cowriter Tonino Benacquista invert audience expectations with a sharp script that nods to Alfred Hitchcock without sacrificing originality.
