Summer Cinema Programme; Vincent Cassel Season - Read My Lips (Sur mes lèvres).
Special 15th Anniversary screening
Deaf secretary Carla is bullied by her mean-spirited male colleagues. When they suggest she needs an assistant it seems like the final insult, but when the first applicant is ex-con Paul she seizes the chance to change her life. Paul is clueless about clerical work as he has experience only of being a thief, but he is desperate for a job. Carla covers his mistakes, and he, anxious to go straight, reluctantly helps her take revenge on her colleagues. But one good turn deserves another, and when Paul asks Carla to return the favour, she finds herself drawn into the criminal underworld.
“An absorbing character study of two lonely and fearful outsider figures, who gradually recognise their mutual dependency.” Tom Dawson, BBCi-Movies
