Catherine (Isabelle Adjani) is a seductive predator - a serial killer who lures wealthy men to their death. Beauvoir (Michel Serrault), a solitary detective known as "The Eye," is in pursuit. Convinced she is his long-lost daughter, he shadows her through Europe, concealing incriminating evidence and helping her elude the police. But when Catherine falls in love with a blind artist (Sami Frey), Beauvoir's jealousy leads to a fatal accident, which once again sets her on a murderous path. Based on the best-selling novel The Eye of the Beholder by Marc Behm, Mortelle Randonnée (Deadly Run) was nominated for five César Awards including Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Cinematography.

Review:

The lovely Isabelle Adjani becomes the object of a detective's obsession in Mortelle Randonnée, translated by the subtitles as Deadly Run. The detective (Michel Serrault), known only as "the Eye," has been hired by a boot manufacturer to find out what kind of girl his son is dating. Unfortunately, she turns out to be very much the wrong kind of girl; she kills, robs, has lesbian escapades, and dies her hair blonde. Instead of turning the murderess in, "the Eye" follows her as she changes identities and conducts a murder spree across Europe. He even helps cover up some of her crimes--perhaps because he sees in her the image of his own lost daughter. Despite the heavy themes, Mortelle Randonnée has a surprisingly light and at-times comic touch, though as "the Eye" grows increasingly possessive of Adjani's character, the mood turns dark. --Bret Fetzer
