"My love, I'm going before you do. I am going before your desire dies... Then we'd be left with affection alone, and I know that won't be enough... I'm going before I grow unhappy... I go bearing the taste of our embraces, your smell, your look, your kisses... I go with the memory of my loveliest years, the ones you gave me... I kiss you now, so tenderly I'll die of it... I have always loved you... I have loved only you... I'm going so you never forget me... Mathilde."

This film is an artistic, sensitive, and very sensual portrayal of two people who fall in love. Part of the joy is watching their clearly-etched characters mesh and blend. This is done so well that no one could believe they are lovers off screen. We ride along with them, and remember our feelings of longing for love, realizing love, and finally, hoping never to lose it. Some people are disappointed with the end, though for anyone who has ever been in love and finds that passion, completely realized, has no where to go but into sadness and loss, this movie works. When one has achieved perfect bliss, the only thing that can follow would be disappointment and, ultimately, death.
