There are actually 8 versions of the play "Intimate Exchanges", but the director cut two of the possible outcomes in order to streamline the process. Also, the material in them was thought to be 'too British' for easy translation. See more »
Impossible to fully remember - you'll have to see it regularly
I agree this is one of the best films made in France in the 90's decade : it is one you can view again and again without having completely mapped all the plot.
It is like a maze where one likes to get lost once in a while.
The two french actors are among my favorites. They have such a wide range of possibilities that they make this kind of miracle possible as a two-actor double-film possible ! Of course, this is obviously an "exercise of style", and it has a sort of theater atmosphere. But the theater is a very rich place for passion.
It also makes me think of 18th century french theater like Marivaux which showed so much characters under pressure.
