(France/Great Britain/Belgium, 2004, 116 minutes)

A year in a secluded boarding school for young girls who are never told why they are there or what are they being trained for. Opaque and oblique fantasy that shows undeniable traces of talent but remains mystifyingly resistant to any sort of explanation or analysis.
