This atmospheric thriller is the twisted tale of two tapes; one, the illegal bootlegged recording of an American opera star, the other, evidence of a crime. The film broke all of the accepted rules of cinema at the time and the director blew his budget on ensuring the style of the film dominated, ensuring its significance as the film that kick-started the ‘Cinema du Look’ wave in 1980’s French cinema.
