A Brutal Game

Director: Jean-Claude Brisseau

Cast Summary: Bruno Cremer, Emmanuelle Debever, Lisa Hérédia


Jean-Claude Brisseau (Secret Things, The Exterminating Angels, A L’Aventure) is an auteur often associated with films that are sexually provocative, risqué and controversial. In this darkly fascinating tale, Professor Tessier (Bruno Cremer), a famous scientist, has an unruly adolescent daughter, Isabelle, who is paralysed from the waist down. From the outset we learn that Tessier is a killer, systematically murdering children who vandalised his lab. Tyrannical and extremely controlling of his daughter, Tessier is also an introverted figure that at times evokes pity. As he descends into a moral abyss his daughter Isabelle increasingly opens up to the world.
