Una de esas peliculas de amor loco tipicas del cine frances de los 70, pero llevada a cabo con el gran oficio de Alain Corneau. Patrick Dewaere, como en Les Valseuses, luce tan bien como cagado en esta cinta, mientras Marie Tringtinant no puede evitar levantarle el...animo a la audiencia masculina con su actuaciòn perversamente inocente de una primaveral quinceañera.
The soul-deep intensity of PATRICK DEWAERE takes this film to a much higher level than if another actor had been cast. There is a rawness, a naked quality to this man that makes you wonder - is he the best French actor of his generation? Watching Sautet's A BAD SON recently, just strengthened this feeling. The eyes alone, express so much. With his emotive-explosive sensitivity he would have been huge in silent films.
