A brilliant movie. I liked it because all the time everything seemed so possible, but strange until the very end where you're shocked finding out what was really going on. It gets you to think about so many things related to life, dreams, and death.
In my view this is one of the best Chabrol's movies. Unfortunately, it did not get as much attention as the others.
Sylvia Kristel was good in her role. She has actually shown she could act.
