Very disappointing - An am-dram stage production on film
5 November 2005 | by blindlemonSee all my reviews

Three stars because it has Emmanuelle Beart, surely the most beautiful actress in cinema today, and talented too, in the right film - but this is not it.

This movie looks and plays like an amateur dramatic production you'd see in a village hall, which is very disappointing given the pedigree of the cast. Beart is always worth watching, sometimes mesmerising; Berling is a fine actor in the right role, but I got the impression after about 3 minutes that both were in this for the paycheck and not much else. A bit embarrassing for both of them, really, especially for Berling who is reduced to running around naked at one point! Check it out if you're a die-hard Beart fan, but don't bother otherwise.
