Anna M (15)

You can file this under Erotomaniac Nightmare, along with Fatal Attraction and Enduring Love.

An attractive Parisian book restorer (Isabelle Carré) goes into hospital with a broken leg and comes out traumatically obsessed with the married surgeon (Gilbert Melki) who operated on her.



For a while, writer-director Michel Spinosa involves us in the psychological cat-and-mouse game between stalker and victim, but, as the title suggests, this is more of a case study than a thriller. Carré is frighteningly good as Anna and the final few frames are marrow-chilling. But a half-hour shorter and it would have been twice as potent.

Wanderlust may be too powerful to resist. Planning a long holiday will be a pleasant diversion from work. You don't have to have fancy accommodation. You're willing to rough it for an adventure, but you do want to get good value for your money. Doing some research into the best places to stay and eat will pay off handsomely. Take along a friend who is free spirited and eager to explore unfamiliar vistas. The two of you will make great travelling companions.More
