Well Done Boro!
30 June 1999 | by (Stockholm) – See all my reviews

This a total Borowczyk experience; well acted, fine dialogue, beautiful set and what not!

One jolly-irritating moment though, the prostitute (Marina Pierro) overdoing her alertness while crossing a busy Paris street leading her blinded lover (Mathiew Carrière) on the way to her friend's flat.

Except that slight moment it is just fabulous.
