Isabelle Huppert plays Michele, now the tough and highly successful head of a violent video game company, the daughter of a reviled father serving life for mass murder. In the opening sequence, Michele is raped by a masked intruder. But she has no use for the police, treats the attack in the most matter-of-fact way, and begins her own resourceful pursuit of this man. Based on a 2012 novel, “Oh ...” by Philippe Djian, ELLE is outrageous, funny and shocking, exhilarating and original. Its portrait of a woman always in command of herself, no matter what, makes every other attempt at grand guignol look gauche. (David Sexton)
