Aspects of a minor version of Hitchcock's «Spellbound» ?
Visually stunning, very atmospheric, good acting... in spite of all these qualities, this slow-moving movie is globally a disappointment : too many plot holes, not enough clues to have a reasonable chance of foreseeing the final «revelation» -- which, in itself, is very moving, but alas, on second though, looks «pasted-on», since one important character connected with it is only revealed as existing almost with that very end. Also disappointing is the use of «wrong» language (one blatant example : «je VAS...» instead of «je VAIS...»). Was another version, in better «international French», made for foreign markets ? If not, ironically said, what a «good» impression this movie would make on more learned viewers !
