A treat for fans of La Rampling, a real Euro mystery.
You'll die with your eyes open if you are a fan of the beautiful Charlotte. In a great french speaking role she is the best thing in the film. The plot is a touch convoluted and a bit difficult to unravel but basically it is a murder mystery. The cop who is supposed to be solving the crime is easily led astray by the smouldering Charlotte Rampling. Let's face it, she could lead any man astray just by looking at them!! And in this film she does more than just looking. Is she telling the truth when she confesses or is she protecting someone? All will be revealed, including all of Charlotte Rampling. If you think that I've given the game away, well, come on now, you'd be disappointed if she didn't get her kit off wouldn't you? See the film if you get the chance, it's a pretty good example of a french cop film if you like that sort of thing. It's certainly better than a lot of the trashy cop films that Hollywood churns out. 7/10.
