Storyline

Julien lives alone with his cat. He dreams of Marie, and a few minutes later, he sees her on the street and makes a date. He asks her to move in with him, and she does. Her boyfriend is dead, the rest of her past a mystery. Although they quickly seem to fall in love, she sometimes pulls away suddenly from Julien, is distant, and spends the night in a hotel. She also dreads something imminent and warns Julien that if he missteps, he will lose her and all memory of her. Julien responds by digging into her past: what explains her remodeling an upstairs garret room, her nightly dreams, her fears? What can Julien, now desperately in love, do when he learns why? Can either rescue the other? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

More evidence of Rivette's New Wave mastery
15 February 2004 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

Hard to say why, but European directors seem to age far more gracefully than

American ones. While Robert "Human Stain" Benton, Clint "Mystic River"

Eastwood and Woody "Anything Else" Allen have shown signs of becoming

prematurely obsolete, Rivette continues to turn out vital, thought-provoking

cinema that looks to be the work of a man half his age. Gorgeously shot, deftly acted, and cleverly scripted, this thoughtful meditation on love is an elegant jewel.
