Enter Paul Angeli. He's a suave light-fingered ex-con unqualified for the simplest tasks. However when it comes tme to steal a file a co-worker has pilfered from Carla's desk, Paul has all the skills that Carla requires. Soon he discovers Carla's uncanny ability to read lips and their relatiosnhip becomes a seductive tango as Paul enlists Carla in a revenge plot against a crooked loan shark.
A masterfully crafted romantic thriller in the Hitchcock tradition, Read My Lips (Sur mes lèvres) won Best Screenplay at the 2002 César Awards.
