Let's get real people. "Nightcap" just ain't that great. After reading some of the critical comments on this film, I decided there was as much projecting going on by reviewers as by the people who cast the film's imagery on the silver screen. Chabrol or no Chabrol, "Nightcap" is awkward, mechanical, scripted, incredible, unbelievable, monotonous, and has an unsatisfying conclusion. Yes, it has an up-side too including Huppert, Huppert, more Huppert and some intriguingly ominous undercurrents, etc. However, there's just too much wrong with execution and too little payoff in the end to make this film a worthwhile subtitle read for most non-French audiences. In short, this is like some really bad early Hitchcock. Recommended only for critics, French film devotees, film fest groupies, Chabrol fans, and the like. (C+)
