I had the honor of having a small role in this movie as an American tourist. The story is very dark and in the end very sad. The acting is wonderful by every one of the principal players and Marseilles is also part of the story. The lead actress won for best actress this summer at the Venice Film Festival and it is well merited. The direction is excellent as well. There is not any humour or "comic relief" throughout the whole movie but I think that a bit of laughter or comedy would not have been appropriate. I had a wonderful day shooing my short scene and was happy to work briefly with one of the principal players who played the chauffeur.
