- Stephen Frears
- Chiwetel Ejiofor, Audrey Tautou, Sergi López
Chiwetel Ejiofor stars as a former Nigerian doctor who has fled to London under grim circumstances and now works at the hotel where Tautou, playing an undocumented Turkish émigré, is working as a maid. This dark, twisty tale, which begins with the discovery of a human heart in a toilet bowl, plays like a post-diaspora Grand Hotel, working as both a suspense thriller and a snapshot of marginalized lives in a modern city.
