Another Chabrol cold heroin after Isabelle -icy- Huppert and Stéphane -frozen- Audran in this satire of the French bourgeoisie, another Chabrol if not the sole Chabrol cinematographical theme. Benoît Magimel is great here. Highly recommended.
Despite an interesting start, I find this film to be weak, perhaps Chabrol's weakest. The character development is poor and it is impossible to buy into certain situations. The denouement just about ruins the film for me. 2/5
This is a movie about a young woman who can't decide between two men. Both are ultimately bad options. The young woman is silly, unsymphatic and you don't know much about her. The men are also unlikable, uninteresting and without any charisma. The plot sounds interesting, but it's not. Extremely boring. A waste.
Chabrols vorletzter Film, mein 21. im privaten Chabrol-Festval. Schlechte Filme kann der Mann nicht machen. Selbst wenn es so aussieht, als ob die Geschichte nur so dahinplätschert, realisiert man langsam, wie schäbig die Motive der Figuren sind, wie verkommen die Blahblah-Gesellschaft ist und wieviel Spaß man dabei hat, dem zuzuschauen.
Can't be correct, the film goes for longer than 75 min! This film is great. I really enjoyed it and Ludavine is sensational and in the movie she's really good too. It's the only Claude Chabrol film I've seen. I really want to see some of his older school films.
