Boring movie

I expected much more from this film. I chose it because of Yolande Moreau, who was outstanding in SERAPHINE. Here, she continues to be so awesome but this movie, sorry to say this, bored me to the death. Maybe because of the story itself, not because of her. I waited for the end, and almost pushed the fast forward button. A real deception, but that's my own opinion. Maybe other folks could find it better than I did.

The script is the only responsible of this failure, not the acting because, I repeat, Yolande Moreau is here as good as usual. It could have been a good film about guilt, but I did not feel it that way. That's not the first time Martin Provost and Yolande Moreau worked together.
