In cold-blooded, vigilante style, a mother exacts revenge for the deaths of her daughter and her daughter's lover in this run-of-the-mill thriller by Alain Bonnot. Jeanne Dufour (Annie Girardot) knows her daughter lives on the wrong side of the law, but when the daughter takes part in a bank robbery and is mercilessly shot down by her supposed cohorts -- who also kill her boyfriend -- the mother vows to avenge her death. Her resolve starts her off on a series of violent and calculated murders executed with no concern for possible consequences -- a dangerous attitude to assume. Within a tightly-paced story, Jeanne is remote in action and emotion, making it difficult to care about what she is doing, or why.
