Impossible to fully remember - you'll have to see it regularly
I agree this is one of the best films made in France in the 90's decade : it is one you can view again and again without having completely mapped all the plot.
It is like a maze where one likes to get lost once in a while.
The two french actors are among my favorites. They have such a wide range of possibilities that they make this kind of miracle possible as a two-actor double-film possible ! Of course, this is obviously an "exercise of style", and it has a sort of theater atmosphere. But the theater is a very rich place for passion.
It also makes me think of 18th century french theater like Marivaux which showed so much characters under pressure.
