Sandrine Bonnaire (MONSIEUR HIRE) stars as Claire, a mother terrified by the discovery that a strange woman has begun systematically following her little girl, locked within the grip of obsession. In the mean time, we learn more about the other woman, Elsa (Catherine Frot) - an emotionally imbalanced mother locked in a divorce battle for custody of her young son, who finds herself almost magnetically drawn to Claire's little girl after innocently glimpsing the child at a local birthday party. She's drawn not merely to observe, but to covet and ultimately possess, which sends Claire into a maelstrom of terror as she feels compelled to confront and contend with this threatening new presence, and to obtain an answer that will account for the woman's seemingly irrational behaviour. But in time, it is Claire whose behaviour begins to seem off-centre, as she demonstrates a growing paranoia and a willingness to go to almost any length to protect herself and the little girl.

Not for me, and subtitles didn't help.
Maybe the ladies could see more in this than I could, but I found it too much of a soap opera to be entertaining.
