This one is a strong contender!Romy Schneider was highly praised (and granted a Cesar) for her "harrowing" part but Zulawski is definitely a deeply boring terribly pretentious director.Outside Schneider,the casts includes zombie Dutronc who portrays a totally unconvincing character with suicidal tendencies and Fabio Testi,one of the worst Italian actors.
The plot is very trite but it is given a "meaningful" "intellectual" treatment whose purpose is to make the audience feel they have watched an "important" work.
Nadine Chevalier was Schneider's answer to those who thought she was still their Sissi.
I'm not an intellectual:I like Sissi best.
