Don't Look Back (Ne te retourne pas) (2009)

Director: Marina de Van. Cast: Monica Bellucci, Sophie Marceau, Andrea Di Stefano. 111 min. France/Italy/Luxembourg/Belgium. Drama/Mystery.

A psychological drama with a significant twist at the end. Sophie Marceau is happily married with two kids, but interested in delving into her shadowy childhood. This sets into motion strange events: slowly she metamorphoses into Monica Bellucci - family and facial features and all. Imagine a person whose face is literally half-Marceau and half-Bellucci ... and realize that this is a creepy movie. Intriguing, and the ending connects the dots quite well, but Christian Bale's 2004 Machinist does it better.
