    From acclaimed French director Alain Corneau (ALL THE MORNINGS OF THE WORLD, SERIE NOIRE) comes a provocative and deliciously subversive new film starring Sylvie Testud, winner of this year's César award for Best Actress. Amélie, a dreamy and romantic young Belgian woman, arrives in Japan to begin work as a translator for the giant Yumimoto Corporation. For Amélie, who spent her childhood in Japan, this is a dream come true. But unfamiliar with the customs of the Japanese workplace, she commits a series of cultural missteps and suffers a never-ending string of demotions, each more absurd and humiliating than the next. Unable to stop her downfall, Amélie suddenly stumbles upon her own extraordinary means of liberation. Based on Amélie Nothomb's best-selling autobiographical novel, Fear and Trembling is an unforgettable account of one woman's tragicomic journey to self-discovery.
