Good performance by Marie Gillain
26 November 2001 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Marie Gillain is excellent as Nathalie in this Tavernier's drama. Not one of his best by the way. In this genre, see Requiem for a Dream which is a lot better.

Out of 100, I gave it 74. That's **½ out of **** stars.

Seen at home, in Welland, on November 26th, 2001.
