Well played but unengaging
5 April 2004 | by sebadeeSee all my reviews

Director Civeyrac's film is a rather cerebral affair. The heroine, beautifully played by Jeanne Balibar, travels to meet her dead father's mistress (Bulle Ogier) who helps her to choose freedom over love and passion. (No wonder this film has

failed to find a distributer in France!) Flashbacks are used to good effect, usually with a window or mirror as point of entry. He should get an award for 'Best use of Hats': I found the idea of desire passing from one person to another by means of a hat really effective. The film is slow, beautiful and quite without the slightest trace of humour.
