stunning movie
30 June 2002 | by (new zealand) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie on tv the other night (late) and was deeply moved by the ending.

Perhaps the subject matter and the inferences implicit in the plot are of significance to me as a middle aged man, but I think that, looking at the breakdown of opinions expressed by age (the younger the voter, the higher the approval rating) the story hit home to younger people...they obviously identified with the tragic circumstances of Odile (Emmanuel Seigner's role)

Anyway...I found myself both sexually and emotionally affected, especially the ending (in fact, primarily the ending). I don't know; maybe it is because I am a fine art photographer and I identify with my subjects (mainly women :o)...I actually wept at the end.

OK!!! Call me crazy...but I am an artist, so I am allowed to be :o)

Peace and love

Loop.
