Mathilde:[Lettre:] Mon amour, je m'en vais avant que tu t'en ailles. Je m'en vais avant que tu ne me désires plus, parce que alors il ne nous restera que la tendresse et je sais que ça ne sera pas suffisant. Je m'en vais avant d'être malheureuse. Je m'en vais en apportant le goût de nos étreintes...See more »

A minimalist Lovestory of Breathtaking Beauty, 5 January 2002
Author: wob wobelix from amsterdam

The odeurs, the warm light, the caresses, the soft looks (and the music of course) makes you feel like discovering an unknown chapter of the Arabian Nights, even though we never leave the South of France.

Like in all fairy-tales time doesn't really mean much in this story ... untill it is too late and the world steps in, heart-stopping, mind-boggling; than the Hairdressers husband turns the cave of Ali Baba into his own pyramid, pushing us, the viewers, out. Tremendous Film !!
