Like a painting
13 December 1999 | by (Cap-de-la-Madeleine, Canada) – See all my reviews

The story? The husband is a scientific man. He's boring and severe with his wife and two children. The woman is the victim. She's bored with her husband and her life. And here comes the third one : a German translater. He's young, handsome, loves life and the children can play with him. You know what happens next! O.K., we saw that a thousand times in movies! But this simple French movie is very beautiful, because of the photography. Views of countryside looks like the works of a great painter. Indoor photography is also superb! This movie looks like Terence Malick before Malick. I really don't understand why the Internet movie database says this movie is like Le dîner de cons (1998)! It's not a comedy and had really nothing to do with this movie! If you want to compare, look at Jean Renoir's Une partie de campagne (but that Renoir movie was in Black and white!) Or compare it to any Malick picture.
