Two sisters, one is a grey mouse struggling historian (Julie Depardieu), and the other a glamorous kept wife (Emanuelle Beart). The latter wants to have her shining glory in the Paris socialite circle. She concocts a plan where both can help each other out, to reach their goals.
It is a story in the vein of George Cukor's, Rich and Famous (1981), rivalry between two women, concerning literary talent, marital status, and social status - and the love / hate underlying their close relationship.
That said, it is not on a par with aforementioned movie. This film feels rather stuffy with a very moralistic tone. The good people are very good, the bad people are very bad. And the latter deserve punishment. A bit infantile.
Nevertheless I enjoyed the film, mainly for the wonderful performance of Emanuelle Beart, who knows how to charm and cut at the same time.
