Hard to toranslate literature into a film
14 December 2003 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

Having read the novel in Japanese and watched the film, I'd like to correct a mistake of David Melville's comment. Lea(played by Charlotte Rampling)is NOT manipulating her young pupil/lover Prudence. Prudence is jealous and angry after discovering the past of Lea, then attempts the revenge against Lea's will. This kind of story is really hard to make into a film. In the novel, we learn Hugo's character, but in the film we hardly acknowledge anything, just a selfish horrible man who dumped his lover. As a result of poor characterisation of Hugo and unnessesary exploitation element, it became just another silly revenge flick.

Incidentally,I had a chance to ask a question to Ms Rampling in 2001. She commented that Zulawski was impossible as an actor, but agreed to take part in because of the friendship of the director.
