To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Wanted to see what all the fuss was about with this film especially regarding the 'shocking' ending which I had read made lots of folk very uncomfortable. Ultimately for me the film is a decent well made TV movie. The story kept me invested up until a certain point where I couldn't help but think (about the main character) that nobody would ever do this, but the film does a fairly good job of making it seem believable. The ending for me was not as shocking or uncomfortable as I had expected and i was ready for the film to be over. One time watch for me. The blu ray copy was OK in my opinion. It looks like it was made for tv in the late 80's.
Great film, spoken in French (and Dutch, I think). The pace is slow but tense. The character development is deep but reaches into places that are unusual and hard to comprehend for most of us. The scenery is mainly France and can add to the dimension if you know the areas. An enjoyable but tense film which has a very European flair and is better than its "american" remake.
Beautifully filmed and delightful French scenery with a shocking ending that seems somewhat tamer through the lense of today's open door sex, violence and empty celebrity society, was 1988 really that long ago?
