Marry in haste, repent at leisure

Pablo and Dominique are two crazy kids in love. Really in love. A love so intense that they cannot bear to be apart. So in love in fact that Dominique takes Pablo to a cemetary and makes him swear on graveyard dirt that even if one of them dies they have to return from the grave or continue their love for all eternity in the afterworld. Pablo of course agrees (eventually), so of course life delivers a kick in the teeth to Pablo when Dominique is seemingly killed in a plane crash.

Pablo learns that there were two survivors of the crash that haven't been identified yet, and after driving himself insane with worry he receives a phone call from Dominique stating that she's okay, and she's coming to visit. Things seem to return to normal but then Dominique starts acting strange and secretive, and can apparently put her hand into flames without any pain. With the help of a college professor, Pablo starts to do some digging...although the professor begins to get more concerned with Pablo than anything else, seeing that there's an empty space where Pablo claims Dominique is standing...

Enough plot! I can see why this gothic horror would be popular among fans, as the mystery of whether or not Dominique is a ghost takes up the bulk of the film, and although the film is set in modern France, things get very gothic when Pablo goes to Dominique's house. The whole film plays out like a bizarre dream (you can read that as 'not very eventful') but if you like atmosphere you should get a kick out of this. The film did catch me out when the sound totally dropped out while Pablo with driving for about a minute before Pablo himself reacts to it, which was a nice trick.

Victor Isreal appears as (what else?) the creepy caretaker, with eyes set to 'really goggly'. You can add this to the pile of gothic horrors that warn the youngsters never to get too deep into a relationship, and to indulge in unprotected casual sex instead.
