Synopsis

Carla is a lonely woman burdened by lack of respect from her co-workers. In a male-dominated society, what hope is there for a 35-year-old woman with a hearing aid? The solution’s name is Paul, an ex-convict she manages to have hired. She teaches him good manners and he teaches her bad ones.

MUBI's take

This rich character study defies the conventions of the thriller while delivering a deeply satisfying experience for genre fans. With daring sound design and impeccable performances by Emmanuelle Devos and Vincent Cassel, Read My Lips is a gripping entry in Jacques Audiard’s (A Prophet) oeuvre.
