Elle l'adore

Each week, FrenchFlicks selects a French film available on TV5MONDE Cinema on Demand. The streaming service presents an assortment of 30 French language films including recent releases and timeless classics, festival favorites, films and series never before seen on television in the US!
This month, TV5MONDE Cinema On Demand presents Elle l'adore, a sardonic comedy about obsessive fandom highlighted by spot-on performances from Sandrine Kiberlain and Laurent Laffite.

Elle l'adore

Muriel Bayen (Sandrine Kiberlain), a divorced mother of two, takes her devotion to rock star Vincent Lacroix (Laurent Lafitte) too far in this comedic thriller. Muriel leaves her beauty parlor life behind when Vincent asks her to help dispose of the body of his girlfriend, who he accidentally killed during an argument. Suspense builds as they are pursued by two recently separated detectives (Pascal Demolon) and (Olivia Cote) who are quarreling with each other while trying to solve the crime. Directed by Jeanne Herry.

"The price of fame and the cost of fandom come crashing together in some amusingly suspenseful ways in Elle l'adore, the debut feature from French actress-turned-director Jeanne Herry." - Hollywood Reporter
