They meet again, but Camille is very unsure about her feelings. When Martin is away for a weekend, Camille and Petra meet in the Circus where Petra is working as an acrobat. They spend the night together, but Martin finds out about it and is shocked. He has an argument with Camille, and she goes burying her dog in the snow, and falls asleep...

...and Falling in love
22 April 2000 | by See all my reviews

I have fallen in love with this movie. Since I patiently waited til the price went down and bought the movie I have watched it almost everyday. This movie runs consistent on all levels from beginning to end. The screen images embrace me and pulls me in. The acting (need I say I love Pascale/ Camille)...the lilt in her voice, her facial expressions, subtle yet so enticing. Petra! what a wonderful counterpart. Perfect music that moves the film along.

Camille's open-mindedness, and strong self-esteem exudes in this film. When her new sexuality is awakened - she doesn't suppress and feel guilty (which easily could have been due to her strong Christian background). She meets it with some trepidation and yet she is an individual with her own mind and heart...and pushes thru the fear.

I just happen to find this movie in Blockbuster...this movie should be seen round the world.
