Sarah (Alysson Paradis), who is pregnant, gets into an automobile accent that costs her husband his life - back home, she is stalked by a strange woman (Béatrice Dalle) who wants to remove the baby from her womb with a pair of very large scissors. As one of the movies grouped into the "New French Extremity" category, the focus is on the purely visceral and grizzly, with no room for joy or hope - Sarah has a brief sexual fantasy about her late hubby that gets interrupted by a memory of his head slamming into the windshield, she accidentally stabs her own mother in the neck - but there's also a complete disregard for the intellect: the in-your-face bloodletting actively discourages any sort of thinking whatsoever. Still, if you can accept that it's supposed to be a gross-out, and it catches you in the right frame of mind, there are cheap thrills to be had.
