3.5* All the men in this film are jerks. Turnabout's fair play I suppose, but a bit of a drag to watch. Perhaps that's why the sexy scenes with Isabelle Huppert were thrown in, as a consolation prize for the men who bought a ticket to see this man-hating fest. I, for one, will go to see any Isabelle Huppert film, with or without sexy scenes, and she certainly makes the most flawed film enjoyable. She's the greatest.
