Romane Bohringer is superb
18 November 2005 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Yelena Safonova is the blonde diva that gets the spotlights and the applause. Romane Bohringer is the self-deprecating accompanying pianist who stays in the dark and is painfully aware of here subsidiary role. One has a husband, a lover, and beautiful clothes, while the other looks very much like the starving student she was at the beginning of the story. One dialog tells all: when the diva makes a disparaging remark about a young man who seems interested in the pianist, she answers "Oh I'm sure he's nothing compared to *your* love affairs.

The rhythm and settings are beautiful without ever taking first place to the story.
