Storyline

Cecile and Julien begin their new life together. Julien works long hours in a video library, a world full of pictures. Coming home late one night, he encounters a young, beautiful, disturbing woman in front of his building. She seems lost, as if in a dream. She mumbles something to him, like a call for help, and vanishes. Since this strange encounter, and maybe for the first time in his life, Julien is confused, becoming obsessed by the mystery surrounding this intriguing woman, Gabrielle. He discovers that she lives across the street with an intimidating, violent-looking man, Louis. Following her at night, Julien sees Gabrielle sleepwalking, perhaps a refugee from the distressful, dangerous world she must inhabit. Risking everything, including Cecile's love for him, Julien plunges into Gabrielle's strange but fascinating life, determined to save her from Louis, even herself, somehow hoping to avert the catastrophe that awaits her.

Half-Hearted

The biggest draw to this movie for me, was L. Sagnier. A beautiful and very talented woman. And she doesn't disappoint acting wise. It's the movie itself that is kind of a drag (not in a very good sense and actually pretty literally). While It's not so much the (slow) pacing of it, but the fact, that many things just remain in the dark (no pun intended).

And while a movie cannot explore every relationship very deeply, you should expect that the relationships of the major character are revealed more in depth. Unfortunately this never happens. And as much as I would love to like it (especially the ending is confusing in almost a good way), there are quite a few things, that don't work here. Nice relationship movie then, with a dark twist (though many things could've been explored better)
