Definitely an interesting fantastic movie , worth watching,but nobody says anything about the end , which is kind of at your own appreciation.I don't wanna say more. Just watch it ! Anna Karina is great ,but also Jean-Claude Carriere is doing a good job .I don't know but it's the first time I heard of a novelist playing in an adaptation of his own book . Interesting ,no ? What I like also about the movie is also that is original , can't be compared to any other movie . It's not only about a devoted veterinarian and scientist but also about his marriage with a mysterious woman . Basically they are 2 characters : HIM and HER , they met by an agency , they wed , so far nothing special but there's suspense , and mystery in the air especially her trips where she ...buys nothing.On the other side him is turning the huge bourgeois apartment into a zoo , interested in extrasensory perceptions of the various animals he's collecting.What do you think , somebody (lover ?) resided in that apartment before ? Before him.
