When Betty crashes a windowpane in her apartment, her forearm bleeds heavily. Minutes later, having been chased through the village by Zorg, she stands against the church wall, and there's no sign of blood. See more »
I had known Betty for a week. We screwed every night. The forecast was for storms.

The most intense, passionate, tragic movie I've ever seen.
It's a strange movie. For sure the best acting ever by Béatrice Dalle, she's the engine of the story, and she's very convincing. It strikes you with impressive force, helped also by an awesome soundtrack and a photography that takes your breath away. I've never forgotten this movie, perhaps the best french film I've ever seen. A cult-movie !
