Everybody knows the tale, and some writer have made wonderful work with it: Some innovative, some sweet, some captivating... This version has nothing to bring to us.
There are formidable actors like Vincent Macaigne, Benoît Poelvoorde (this two reach are the only good work about the movie) and Isabelle Huppert (she couldn't do much I think since her role is without any emotion or extravagance), and the director fault in creating something.
The only thing that kept me seeing the movie till the end is the actress Lou de Laâge, not for her work that was poorly executed (maybe because of the director, I don't know), but because of her naked (I'm a simple man) and to see if she had sex with all the "seven dwarves". It's not the best compliment we can do to an actress or a movie... She's beautiful but never expressed the "purity" that everyone talks about on the movie. The sex scenes are there without bringing any intensity or something new to the plot or characters. It could have so much passion, emotions, etc, but nothing there...
This movie could be great on so many levels, it fails on everything unfortunately.
