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
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 »
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 »
For people with a larger scope of intellectual vision
Anyone writing a bad review for this movie is either fenced in by there own misconceptions of the intricacies of human behavior, only reach as far as their own eyes will take them and do not have the ability to understand the story behind the actual novel itself which is complex, intense and utterly revealing of twisted emotions that day to day minds wouldn't stretch to, or would blindly chose to avoid thinking about.
This film got 100% less acknowledgment than it deserved, perhaps because people are more interested in shallow, fast-paced movies that keep them occupied for a couple of hours without having to delve into anything with depth because it uses too much brainpower and 'scares' them.
Look beyond what you know, expand your mind, thats what a film is meant to do.
