Isabelle Huppert plays a translator at the Paris police’s drug cartel who re-educate herself as a drug queen in this comic thriller by Jean-Paul Salomé. To be able to continue to fund her mother’s elderly care, interpreter Patience Portefeux is faced with a difficult choice, to continue her honest but underpaid profession, or to build a miniature drug empire by hiding a fair amount of information when translating wiretaps? In a genre film like this, Patience of course chooses the latter. And as viewers, we are of course happy about it, because the result is an entertaining and lively spectacle carried by the brilliant main character.
– Daniel Tollefsen Altamirano
