“The mesmerizing Isabelle Huppert is at it again. You can't take your eyes off her.” - The New York Times

“Isabelle Huppert, arguably the finest French screen actress of her generation, has yet another splendid role in the complex, compassionate and endlessly illuminating Special Treatment. Impressive!”
Los Angeles Times


In this darkly erotic drama from cult filmmaker Jeanne Labrune, Isabelle Huppert stars as a high-class prostitute named Alice who serves up sexual fantasies for her clientele, from schoolgirl innocence to S&M. Fed up with the seamy underbelly of French masculinity, Alice crosses paths with Xavier, a neurotic psychoanalyst facing a marriage crisis. The two quickly realize their professions share a thing or two in common as they navigate the overlapping worlds of psychotherapy and sex therapy.

“Huppert has succeeded once again.” - Roger Ebert

“Smart, witty, entertaining!” - San Francisco Examiner

“Huppert is astonishing. Her abandon and willingness to try anything give the movie a bracing unpredictability.” - Time Out Chicago

“A memorable journey, with exquisitely drawn characters and a tremendous cast, that blends satire, melancholy and romance in unlikely but delicious fashion.” - Andrew O'Hehir,
