"Polanski orchestrates this cat-and-mouse game with devilish delight." - Village Voice
"Above all else, a sharp, sexy comedy performed by two superb and superbly in-tune actors, and directed with a sure hand by a filmmaker who's clearly not cowed by the challenge of blowing up a two-person chamber piece for the screen." - Dana Stevens, Slate
Master filmmaker Roman Polanski ("Chinatown," "Rosemary's Baby") returns with a delightful, perfectly cast adaptation of David Ives' Tony-nominated play. An entitled playwright (Mathieu Amalric of "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly") is struggling to find an actress for the lead role in his new work. Late in the audition process, Vanda (Emmanuelle Seigner) walks in, and the two are soon sucked into a slippery role-playing game.
