Emmanuelle Béart is the beauty personified and the main character in this modern French film. Wish I had still photographs of certain scenes with her in this film. Amazing eye movement by her as well as Michel Serrault, who also acts very well. Well crafted, well acted, very good ending... Not a single piece of music till close of the end; could have been more of that I think. Almost the whole movie is filmed indoors, and pretty much in the same locations, a lot of talking, ... I liked watching it, but mostly because of Béart. Otherwise it was only moderate captivating and exciting.
