Middle-aged Julien lives alone with his cat. He dreams of Marie, and a few minutes later, he sees her on the street and makes a date. He asks her to move in with him, and she does. Her boyfriend is dead, the rest of her past a mystery. Although they quickly seem to fall in love, she sometimes pulls away suddenly from him, is distant, and spends the night in a hotel. She also dreads something imminent and warns him that if he missteps, he will lose her and all memory of her. He responds by digging into her past: what explains her remodeling an upstairs garret room, her nightly dreams, her fears? What can he, now desperately in love, do when he learns why? Can either rescue the other?Written by
You can't help but admire the intellectual twaddle people come up when reviewing this film, yes its fairly interesting all be it a little slow for some viewers but it seems that because its French then it has to be a deep meaningful masterpiece that will stay with you forever and mature like a fine wine etc etc.. in reality its an interesting all be it not that original idea, Beart, pouts her plastic lips and shows her fine (plastic?) breasts as usual, Radziwilowicz drifts and meanders through the film in an unconvincing manner, Anne Brochet does ok and the cat after a shaky start grows into its role and does very well indeed... that's about it... its your standard older man, troubled younger mysterious woman flick with some very wooden unconvincing sex scenes, some long silences, a bit of blackmail and a cat... done French style... its alright but nothing special... 6/10
And if you ever have a clock that needs mending don't give this guy a ring as he spends what seems like months messing about with the same 2 or 3 pieces of mainspring and gear getting nowhere.. a bit like many viewers will with this film..
