(English: Stop Me) is a 2013 French thriller film directed by Jean-Paul Lilienfeld and starring Sophie Marceau, Miou-Miou, and Marc Barbé. Written by Jean-Paul Lilienfeld and Jean Teulé, the film is about a woman who shows up at a police station and confesses to the murder of her abusive husband several years earlier. The female police officer who interviews her cannot understand why this woman who was never a suspect has come forward after all this time. The more she learns about the woman’s life, the less she wants to arrest her. Arrêtez-moi was released on 6 February 2013 in France.
Regardless of any issues the Henry of Navarre has or one has with the film, it is undeniably a fantastic achievement as a European historical epic of real scale and ambition, and delivers the violent goods with style and panache, despite a modest budget. The cinematography skilfully emulates renaissance paintings of the period, and the battle sequences handled with fierce energy. The filmmakers must have slept easy knowing that Gernot Roll was behind the lens, a veteran of German television’s Heimat series, a landmark of German cinema and one of the finest TV programmes of all time. Director: Jo Baier. Writers: Jo Baier, Heinrich Mann (novel). Stars: Julien Boisselier, Joachim Król and Andreas Schmidt
Court metrage, sous-titres en anglais.
