Storyline

David is an accountant. He leaves town every Friday, pretending he is going to take care of his parents at their old people's home. But actually his parents are dead, and he spends the week-ends converting a chalet. He intends to live there with Lise, a woman he knows and loves since childhood. But Lise has just married another and has a baby. David's mad love does not see those facts as an obstacle... Written by Yepok

Poor TV movie type of story
29 March 2002 | by trpdeanSee all my reviews

I don't agree that this is middle-brow film-making. It's more typical of something on the Lifetime Channel.

I do agree that the movie could have (in other hands) been made intriguing by looking at the chain of obsessions among the characters in the movie - but it fails to do so. This is pretty poor stuff. My main interest was in seeing Depardieu and Miou Miou so much younger than I'm used to seeing them. Even Chamonix looks no more remarkable than any other mountain area. This is really not worth people's time.
