The movie which put Téchiné on the map.....
15 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

....and perhaps his best.This one has qualities and a sense of mystery ,an atmosphere and good acting.

Gérard Depardieu plays two parts and when people learned he played opposite Isabelle Adjani ,they named them " couple of the year" .Let's not forget an excellent support from Marie -France Pisier as a prostitute and Jean-Claude Brialy . The story takes place in Amsterdam and Téchiné made the best of his opportunities: classy thespians and a legendary harbor.

The plot is far-fetched ,but the use of the railway station is entrancing.Trains have a magic cars ,boats and planes do not possess.
