FEAR AND TREMBLING

Stupeur et tremblements

Trailer
Directed by Alain Corneau
France, 2003
Comedy, Drama
      French
      English

Synopsis

A dream job rapidly becomes a nightmare for Amelie, a Japanese-born Belgian woman, who suffers a series of humiliating demotions after she lands a job as an interpreter at a large Japanese corporation.

Our take

From French director Alain Corneau, Fear and Trembling is a critically acclaimed, darkly funny, and winningly perverse comedy about a twisted workplace hell. And in a just world, Sylvie Testud, who won Best Actress at the Césars and the Karlovy Vary Film Festival, would be much better known.
