A good show
18 August 2014 | by jonathan_lippmanSee all my reviews

I was an extra in this film, a one day shoot on the beach near CAnnes and I show up for one or two seconds in a scene about 1 hour and 20 minutes into the film on the beach with the two young lead walking by and me in my swim trunks standing by the edge of the sea. OK Not much but fun to see. I enjoyed the film mostly because it was shot here in the South of France where I live and they went to great pains to make it look authentic from the 1970s when most of it takes place and its beautifully photographed. Good performances from the three leads and a true story that is still unsolved. Did this man kill this girl or not? We still do not know for sure. Miss Deneuve ages to the end of the film and I do not recall ever seeing her let herself go like that in films. I spoke briefly to Guillaume Canet on the set that day and he was very nice and approachable. A memorable experience and in the end a good film too
