Isabelle Huppert once agains triumphs, this time in Russian in screen adapt
2 May 1999 | by gonz30See all my reviews

Resurrected last month for a tribute to Isabelle Huppert, who spoke over one hour to a standing room only crowd at the 1999 FESTIVAL DU FILM DE PARIS, this Russian film by Igor Miaiev was adapted from Evgueni Ziamatine's novel of the same name, "L'Inondation" in French or "The Flood". A rather slow moving film which feels much longer than it actually is (a legacy of films from the former Soviet Union), it was one of the first Russian-French coproductions of the post-Communist area. Non-political in nature, the picture deals with a range of women's issues, including infidelity, infertility, discrimination, and jealously, all dealt with in remarkable depth by the perfectly casted Isabelle Huppert. Warning: recommended only for Russian film and Isabelle Huppert fans.
