Storyline

A woman and three men. Nina, who's come to Paris to act and sleeps with any man at hand, meets Paulot, a young estate agent; he's smitten. She also meets Paulot's flatmate Quentin, a compulsive who stalks her. To Paulot's jealous dismay, she's willing to sleep with Quentin, and wants Paulot's friendship. After a desperate act by Quentin, Nina and Paulot share a flat, but she still won't take him as a lover; instead, her energy goes into a production of "Romeo and Juliet" directed by a detached, intense man who becomes her father figure. Quentin's ghost taunts her, Paulot wants to end all contact, and the director plans to return to London. The art of the theater may be her only refuge. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quotes

Quentin: So you're going to play Juliet! The tea-or-chocolate wench wants to be a princess. Alas, it's a story about love, an emotion you're incapable of feeling. You're too shallow to imagine it, too common to understand it.

Binoche is great, but very offensive toward women
27 March 2011 | by (Saint Paul, MN) – See all my reviews

Lousy, stereotypical and misogynistic, but, hey, if you ever wanted a glimpse of Binoche's binush, this is the film for you! Binoche plays a slutty, fairly talentless actress who meets up with Wadeck Stanczak and invites him to her play, even though she's sleeping and living with one of the ushers. His presence breaks up that convenient relationship and she accompanies Stanczak home. He assumes he's getting laid, but he's too goody-goody for her. Instead, she ends up falling for his complete bastard of a roommate, played by Lambert Wilson. The guy, after seeing her once, attempts to rape her and threatens to kill her. On their next meeting, he threatens to slit his throat in front of her (with the razor he brought with him). This is known in France to be normal behavior, as we all know from their movies. Of course, she'd fall for him, leaving poor sap Stanczak with a rosy palm. The film is unbelievably insulting towards women. Fortunately, Binoche is such a fantastic actress that she almost makes the film worth watching. The character is stereotypical in a lot of ways, but she gives it her all. This was basically her first starring role in what would be (and continues to be) one of the best acting careers in the movies.
