Storyline

Diane, a Parisian of 50, a book editor married with two teen children, has an affair with a twenty-something engineer. He's Emilio, the flat-mate of François, a writer she's coaxing through a second novel. Her husband Philippe, who suspects and then confirms her infidelity, is the attorney defending an older neighbor who stuck a fork in her husband's jugular. We know Diana's affair will end, but how much damage will it do? Will Philippe emulate his murderous client, or will Diana's bathos play out as farce? Can Diana rescue herself from the self-indulgence that comes with lovesickness? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Love story with little fun and a lot of pain
14 November 1998 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

This a story about a woman in love. Love is painful. And so is the movie...

The movie is bad in any reasonable sense, except maybe for the acting. If you are renting it with English subtitles, be prepared to miss about 50% of them. The photography is awful. The director tried to be pretentious, which made things worse. Let me tell you one thing about this movie:

If you didn't see it, keep it that way!
