Saw the film at the Festival du film français in Seoul. Although the film is slow at the start, it gives the audience a pretty good background of friendship (or relationship) of the characters, Natalie and Louise on which the film is based on. Natalie is an accomplished theatre actress and Louise tries to achieve her dream through Natalie's career... The 2 actresses (Béart et Brussières)did an excellent job portraying very different characters. The screenplay wasn't as original as I've expected yet the acting really makes up this disadvantage. A very enjoyable drama.
