Arrêtez-moi (English: Stop Me) is a 2013 French thriller film directed by Jean-Paul Lilienfeld and starring Sophie Marceau, Miou-Miou, and Marc Barbé. Written by Jean-Paul Lilienfeld and Jean Teulé, the film is about a woman who shows up at a police station and confesses to the murder of her abusive husband several years earlier. The female police officer who interviews her cannot understand why this woman who was never a suspect has come forward after all this time. The more she learns about the woman's life, the less she wants to arrest her.[2] Arrêtez-moi was released on 6 February 2013 in France.
