This film is mostly drama...it has a tad bit or horror in it. But this is not a horror film. I found the story entertaining. The acting was great. It is a French film. I did not mind reading the subtitles.
I rate this film and 8 because it feels like an 8 compared to the other films I have viewed recently.
Good choice for leading man. He seemed effortless in his acting and I was easily absorbed.
The leading lady was attractive and charming. All her scenes were believable.
The story was obviously fiction. But to me that true virtues of this movie is that you allowed yourself to be absorbed and suspended reality to be engulfed in the movie.
