Plot & Details
When Christine, a powerful executive (Kristin Scott Thomas), brings on a naive young ingenue, Isabelle (Ludivine Sagnier), as her assistant, she delights in toying with her naivete and teaching her hard lessons in a ruthless professional philosophy. But when the protege's ideas become tempting enough for Christine to pass one as her own, she underestimates Isabelle's ambition and cunning-- and the ground is set for all out war.
