A little gem...
16 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

..waiting to be discovered .A story about people who are getting old and who try to begin a brand new life by corresponding with someone with whom they might have "possibly more".The threesome Simone Signoret/Jean Rochefort/Delphine Seyrig shines all along the movie.Seyrig finds here her best part since "the discreet charm of the bourgeoisie ".She was a magical actress ,sadly missed.So was Signoret.The screenplay was written by excellent Gerard Brach,who often wrote in collaboration with Polanski or Annaud ("l'ours").Moshé Mizrahi had already directed Signoret in a memorable "Madame Rosa ".The high rating the movie enjoys on the site proves that there's sometimes justice in the universe.
