Abuse of Weakness
Driven filmmaker Maud (Isabelle Huppert) suffers a stroke that renders her a hemiplegic, but finds her lust for life restored by a charismatic young con man named Viko (Kool Shen), who she seeks to star in her next film. Before long Maud and Viko are inseparable. Despite the comfort that Viko's presence brings Maud initially, however, his parasitic lifestyle soon begins to drain her both financially and emotionally. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
