Unmissable, beautiful film!
12 November 2006 | by adelaide-9See all my reviews

This is exactly what French cinema is best at doing, a brilliant, psychological drama that absolutely makes you sit up and think. I won't spoil the plot for you, as I think everyone should take the time to watch this film, and figure it out for themselves. I will say that the acting is incredible, Jean-Pierre Darroussin and Carole Bouquet provide a real tour De force as the main couple. All the incidental characters also make it stick, and the film is so artfully filmed, in fact everything combines together to make an overall brilliant picture. Perhaps needless to say, it is a very psychologically demanding film, but absolutely essential viewing. France after a slip in the 80s and early 90s has come back with vengeance in the Cinema stakes, and hopefully the rest of the world will sit up and take notice of this Cinema Revolution currently going on! Flawless and truly unmissable.
