Number One Fan

104 minutes 2014

A French pop star whose girlfriend has died in a suspicious-looking accident calls on the woman who once stalked him to help dispose of the girlfriend’s body; needless to say, things don’t turn out well. This drily comic French thriller marks the feature debut of writer-director Jeanne Herry, whose deceptively calm surfaces and psychologically nuanced characterizations prove her a worthy student of Claude Chabrol. The title character is no kook or psychopath but a sympathetic loner prone to bad decisions, and Sandrine Kiberlain brings a tenderness and a nervous energy to the role. In French with subtitles.
