The first real professional success for famed French actress Maria Enders was twenty years ago as the co-lead in writer Wilhelm Melchoir's play and subsequent movie "Maloja Snake", he who picked Maria, then an unknown, personally. She played Sigrid, an opportunistic eighteen year old in an emotionally dependent lesbian relationship with forty year old Helena, who was at a vulnerable stage of her life. Maria has turned down the play's upcoming London revival in which she would now play Helena, it remounted by director Klaus Diesterweg. Her reasons for turning down the role are many including: being at a vulnerable stage of her own life going through a painful divorce; remembering the suicide of Susan Rosenberg, the original Helena, following the original run of the play, the suicide purportedly mirroring what happens to Helena; and the painful memories of the production in still having hard feelings toward who was her older male costar, Henryk Wald, with who she had an affair at the ...Written by

She dives headfirst into a character's ambiguities, but I don't. That's why you admire what she does.
Yeah. You know, I think that when you watch her in a movie like in the one we saw tonight, there is - there is no distance there.
It's normal, it's a - culture. Right?
What's wrong with my acting? What do I need to do to make you admire me? Do I think too much? Huh? I'm too classical; not liberated like Jo-Ann? You're here to talk to me, so start talking.

The movie didn't present a story that's easy to relate to for most viewers. I think even for movie enthusiasts the core story doesn't really click into their minds. It also doesn't get presented well enough at the opening stages. The movie builds the characters well enough at the early stages then starts to present the core story and letting the main conflict seeps in into the whole bigger picture. Thus this movie feels so very slow that it kind of bored me to the first hour or so. But the acting work is very much a splendid job in overall. The three main cast did their parts very greatly immersing in their own respective characters and depicting the right emotions and mannerisms. Julieete Binoche being with the most screen time here did great in exploring her character and her character's anxieties. Kristen Stewart did also very well to develop herself past Twilight movies. She adequately balances Binoche in their dialog parts. Chloe Grace Moretz did a great job in depicting the rebellious star, and she did great to portray a huge difference between the hangover press conference scene and the crucial hiding from paparazzi scene.
