Paul Verhoeven’s first feature in a decade ranks amongst his most incendiary, improbable concoctions: a wry, almost-screwball comedy of manners about a woman who responds to rape by refusing the mantle of victimhood. Instead, she engages her assailant in a dangerous game of domination and submission in which her motivations remain a constant source of mystery, humour, and tension. Film Society of Lincoln Center

“Few could pull off the unapologetically demented nature of ELLE like Verhoeven.” Associated Press
