How not to think of Herbert Ross's "the turning point" where Ann Bancroft fulfilled her ambitions when her friend Shirley McLaine became a housewife?Okay,the French movie has the lesbian side but even that has become so natural now (remember Claude Chabrol's "les biches" ,1967).But whereas Herbert Ross's story was interesting and entertaining,Catherine Corsini's work is stodgy ,pretentious,cold and so intellectual it's sometimes unbearable .It makes me think of the worst hour of the nouvelle vague.Sure Emmanuelle Beart is a beautiful actress,but elsewhere .Pick up Claude Chabrol's "l'enfer" or FRançois Ozon's "8 femmes "instead.Or De Palma's "Mission :Impossible" for those whose tastes run that way.
