The one-way passion of a woman to another women
28 April 2002 | by (France) – See all my reviews

This well built French drama clearly narrates a story of a passion. I think "La répetition" is one of the best films that have ever been made on the passion of a woman to another one. The interesting point about that is the passion has not got counter-love or passion from the desired woman.

A story of women, from a woman which reflects perfectly, the ununderstandable relation of passion, hate and rivalry between two friends.
