Only the French could make a tensely erotic revenge thriller which hinges on a girl failing a piano exam. The girl is Mélanie, a Parisian perfectionist who blames her failure on one of her examiners. A few years later, Mélanie manoeuvres her way into the examiner's country house, first as her son's nanny, then as a page turner for her piano recitals.

At last, vengeance is hers. But, just as a page turner is supposed to be almost invisible as she carries out her tiny but vital role, Mélanie's devastating payback is accomplished via the smallest, subtlest of actions.
