Review: (#1) When you’re talking about Paul Verhoeven, the cat may end up being symbolic. However, that isn’t something most viewers will see or expect or immediately suspect. (#2) The design is poorly PhotoShopped, but is much better at evoking the film’s premise than the other design.
Trailer Rating: B

Review: The trailer starts off slow, but builds to a compelling finish, creating an environment that looks unconventional within a very conventional milieu. That alone should help give it a chance with fans of French cinema.
There’s some chatter that Isabelle Huppert could be on the shortlist for consideration. Support from critics will certainly help, but there are no guarantees with the Oscars, especially with foreign-language actresses.
