In picturesque Lausanne, where one can truly savor a cup of hot chocolate, musician Anna Mouglalis asks for and receives mentoring from famed pianist Jacques Dutronc—but begins to suspect that the latter’s wife Isabelle Huppert is capable of murder. Always a potent director/star team, Chabrol and Huppert together expertly maintain the winter-chill temperature; pristine piano performances include ones of works by Chopin, Debussy, Liszt, Mahler, and Schubert.
