Student and teacher
1 September 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The eternal triangle, but a bit different, since the professor is so much older than young Roland. Anna married the professor for status; she knew he wasn't interested in sex, at least not with women. What he seems to need is a bright but wayward youth to gaze longingly at, one who will take dictation for a book on Shakespeare that probably isn't very good. What does Roland need? To worship the professor as a surrogate father, and to make love to Anna, even as he bears her bitter wisecracks directed at his professor-worship.

It's not a great film by any means; direction is pedestrian, sets poor, color mediocre. But Michel Piccoli makes a wonderful fuddy-duddy gay professor, and Gila von Weitershausen is stunning to look at--every young man's idea of the sexy older woman.
