Plot: A beautiful Parisian woman opens the wrong door and steps into a dizzying psychological mystery that will forever change two lives in Patrice Leconte's Intimate Strangers (Confidences Trop Intimes). Leconte's 20th feature film - the follow-up to his acclaimed Man on The Train -- is a provocative love story masked in the guise of a suspense thriller.
