Was average, could have been great!
26 March 2003 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Claude Berri began filming this movie in 1996 with Daniel Auteuil

and Juliette Binoche. Berri and the headstrong Binoche came to

(creative) blows over script changes. He wanted to make it more of

a love story, she wanted it to remain more factual and so in a move

unheard of in French cinema he fired his leading actress, who

also happened to be the biggest French star in the world. A few

monthe later she won an Oscar for The English Patient and berri

recast his movie with Carole Bouquet in the lead.

Bouquet is a talented actress, but not in the same league as the

extremely gifted Binoche. Auteuil as usual gives a fine

performance, but the whole excersise seems leaden down by

romanticism.

Binoche and Auteuil went on to star together in Leconte's

altogether better La Veuve de Saint-Pierre
