Storyline

Young Bastien is very pleased when his hugely successful TV producer boss Jean-Louis Broustal begins to recognize him for his talents and then invites him to his country house for the weekend to work on a new show. But gradually it becomes clear that no work is going to be done. In fact, Broustal and his much younger pretty wife seem to want Bastien for something very different than for his television talents. But can he accept their offer? Can he afford not to? Things go awry and lead to a taut and frenzied finish. Written by Martin Lewison <dr@martinlewison.com>

I loved it
8 February 2005 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I don't understand why this film didn't get more exposure cause it sure is a UFO of a film. Knowing where it is going is impossible. Berléand as the media tycoon is incredible, Canet perfect in his ready-to-do-anything-to-succeed character, and Krugger is just stunning.

Cold sense of humor.

Original screenplay.

A good film to rent.

The end is pure poetry and a reflexion on what our society has become.

Recommended ? Of course.
