Farmer plays Pauline - the mother of two girls - who has inherited a mysterious,
isolated house from her Aunt. On the first night in the new place, they
are confronted with a frenzied, brutal home-invasion. The maniacal violence
is overwhelming but Pauline manages to save the life of her two daughters.
However, the damage to their psyche continues to haunt them forever. Sixteen
years later, one of the girls, Beth (who has moved away and enjoys a successful
life as a writer) receives a stressed, insane call from sister Vera begging
for her to come to the house where the madness has erupted again.
is an extraordinary movie from award-winning filmmaker Pascal Laugier
(director of MARTYRS,
2008). He also helmed various music videos for Mylène
Farmer including City of Love. The enigmatic Ms Farmer has
been a major recording star in Europe since the mid '80s, responsible
for twelve plantinum-selling albums. She is featured in the Guinness
Book of World Records for the International top selling single of
all time: Désenchantée in 1991. Mylène's
entire career has been shrouded in mystery. Very little is known about
her personal life but her music revolves around themes of death, horror,
blood, and the opposition to religion. All of her music videos prior to
1994 were directed Laurent Boutonnat who seemed to be instrumental in
guiding her career. However, with the utter disaster of their motion picture
they stopped working together. After a brief retirement, Ms Farmer [born
Mylène Jeanne Gautier in Montreal Canada, 1961] returned to music
and began working with numerous influential directors worldwide.
