Storyline

In Geneva in the 1930s; Solal and Ariane meets at a party. Their lives differ as day and night. Ariane is a young married aristocrate from a Protestant family from Geneva. Solal is a Jewish diplomat who rises from nothing to the second highest position in the League of Nations on the eve of the Second World War. Ariane is none other than the wife of his subordinate, Adrien. But they are carried away by their fervent love and must not only undergo the hostility of the rest of the world but also deal with their own problems. Solal is plagued by obsessive love and Ariane is swept away by a passionate and physical love. And Solal hides a dark part of his personality. But their love is based on fundamental understanding. He loves the thought of Ariane, she loves the reality of Solal. Written by lament

Trivia

The riding-on-the-beach sequence has anachronisms: the riding-clothes are modern-day in style and look ''off-the-peg": the '30s breeches should have been flared,for a start,and the blazer-style riding-jackets look too modern.Even the classy Friesian horses, supposedly being hired hacks brought to the hotel for the lovers' canter by the sea, don't fit a period setting. Maybe the producers couldn't afford the extra costs of getting the period-detail right: a pity. See more »

Goofs

Solal and Ariane attend a concert in Italy in 1937, at which Charles Ives' "The Unanswered Question" (which is also heard throughout the film's soundtrack) is performed. This work was not performed until 1946, in the USA. See more »

Excellent movie
5 November 2014 | by dianasaidova1987See all my reviews

One of the best movies made,but it's not for everyone, it has betrayal, delusional ideals and anything a good drama should have. Jonathan's best movie apart from The Tudors, and match point. The movie contains scenes where it's hard to follow and that becomes intriguing you wanna know more. By all means the book was excellent but it's nice to see a movie version which usually never does justice to the paper format. The supporting actress didn't have many lines and wasn't your conventional housewife but her beauty and charm captured him, somehow. If you have time and are confused watch this movie it will keep you busy and interested particularly if you had a fight with your lover it will entertain you.
