I saw this film in Sydney back in 1991. I remember enjoying it, but I always did have a strange taste in movies. As I'm writing this in 2003 I wonder what happened to it in the meantime.
It was neatly summarised by a couple I overheard on leaving the cinema. He said something like "Only in a French movie would you get two naked people talking about their relationship for an hour and a half". That's exactly what happened in the film - but I don't recall being bored at any time.
The amusing thing is that they begin the film naked and by the end they're both dressed. I'd love to see it again one day.
