Could have used a better supporting cast
13 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First, I have to say I actually enjoyed this movie, and I would have given it 9/10. What problem I have with it is Sean Young. I love Jeanne Moreau, and have many of her movies. I just feel that this movie would have had better appeal if they had picked someone else for Sean Young's character. The premise of the film was good, and the other supporting cast members weren't too bad, but it seemed that Ms. Moreau had to try and carry most of the film on her own. Not an easy task, even from someone as talented as Ms. Moreau. The sad part is that Ms. Moreau's films take so long to come to DVD in the US. I have been a fan of french, and foreign, films for quite some time, and it is too bad that we don't have better support for foreign films in this country, so that they get released here. We are missing out on some great movies and actors. This film is worth seeing. Just don't judge the rest of the movie based on Ms. Young's performance. I hope it comes to DVD in the US some time soon.
