Terrific story for terrific performances, even for a topic already told a thousand times before. This is a pure tragedy with a Sergi Lopez at his peak, who plays an ex con who was sent to jail for having almost killed a man. Only because he is madly in love with the always outstanding Celine Salette. She is the girl friend of the awesome Eric Cantona who is here as he man as ever, even more than ever. Everything is placed here to permit the tragedy to explode.
But I don't get why the screen play emphasizes here on the subplot between the two stage students.
In summary, it's a rural tragedy that could have been shown on a french channel in the evening program. But in a very efficient way.
