Goofs

(flopped shot) Throughout the film, the main character has a mutilated left hand, which he wears in a leather strap. But in the long scene where he walks alongside Sandrine Bonnaire on her bicycle, and both meet the local priest also on bicycle, it's his right hand that is mutilated! One wonders how the actor being prepared for that scene could possibly have overlooked the switch. Next day, he enters the fish factory with his familiar left hand mutilated. See more »

The picture, the story, the intensity of feelings ; perfect combination
12 November 2011 | by (New-Brunswick) – See all my reviews

About the injured hand change in the middle of the film : it was filmed with the good one but the director decided afterward, for aesthetic reasons, to flip the image in the computer so the characters and everything else in that scene appear as though it was filmed conversely. He said it in an interview.

The dramatic tension builds up with the emotions of each character. We feel exactly as they feel. The rejection of the stranger by many of them is especially strong, and their angriness towards him all collapse magnificently when he reveals, in a Coup-De-theater scene near the end, why precisely he lost the use of his hand. Another fascinating psychological evolution : the complete rejection of him by his lighthouse partner that slowly but surely becomes esteem and friendship.

A story that looks typical at the start but that nevertheless brings an extraordinary personal view of people, not to mention the sea views that are just breathtaking.
