Asia Argento is great. This film is not. She is so unique, she really needs just exactly the right kind of film for her to shine, like "The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things", which she directed. That role was made for her. Assayas is hit-or-miss. This one is a miss.
Loved the first part hated the second. A cinematic experiment in storytelling that wasn't ultimately really satisfying but was intriguing nonetheless because of what dedication the actors brought to their characters.
Interesting film. AA is excellent in this role. Cinematography is excellent. The lack of exposition is a plus for me. I would have liked a slightly different ending, but only because my movie tastes are a little simplistic.
