Storyline

Fabienne, a young woman, is taken to the country woods by a group of men and shot to death. Her body is found by Gabriel, an angel who restores her life. He brings her to a cabin on the mountain. They fall in love and live together in isolation. Fabienne has no memory of her past but learns to live again with grace and beauty under the care of Gabriel. For reasons she doesn't understand, she longs to return to the city, and on the fateful day she wanders away from the protection and beauty of angelic life, she encounters the men who murdered her.

Dark, Smart and Leaves You Thinking
19 February 2002 | by ApsaraSee all my reviews

A hard to find film, but a true gem. Explores a darker side to humanity but somehow remains beautiful through simple imagery and a thought-provoking script. Watch this one with your lover in the dark with candles glowing. Available in French with English sub-titles.
