I must say I didn't quite get along with either cécile aubry or manon herself. maybe that's the point, dunno... I guess I'd have more sympathy for the character if it weren't for her "baby" look in here. but again, maybe that's the point - it delivers a naughtier, more scandalous portrait of manon lescaut. besides that: my praise goes to auclair's performance and to - whoa! - those ending sequences. wondrous!
