"Un amour interdit" stars two of the most beautiful French actresses, Emmanuelle Beart and Brigitte Fossey. It is a strange film, that focuses primarily upon Brigitte Fossey's character "Elvire", beginning with a bizarre dream sequence in the opening of the film while Fossey sleeps, in which there are numerous views of fire and intense heat, along with visions of human hands and strong, forceful embraces. Fire and heat seem to have a predominant focus in "Un amour interdit" as we are shown numerous shots of flames, sweaty embraces, dreaming characters breaking out in sweat, hazy suns, and even an instance of a man who has been burned on his face and portions of his body.
Upon seeing this film, I do not fully understand it, except for one important thing, and that is the fact that Emmanuelle Beart is truly beautiful! At the time of "Un amour interdit", Emmanuelle was a tender, young 19 years old. I admit that she is the primary reason why I purchased this very difficult to find film. "Un amour interdit" does a splendid job of showing Emmanuelle's sparkling, large eyes, along with her soft, gentle body. She is a beautiful woman, and "Un amour interdit" does great justice for Emmanuelle's angelic features.
