This film’s one of my favorite. The screenplay based upon Emmanuèle Bernheim’s novel of the same name. The film premiered at the 2002 Venice Film Festival. Cast: Valérie Lemercier (Laure) and Vincent Lindon (Jean).
“Between Laure and Jean, almost no word is exchanged; almost no explanation is offered to us. This is Denis’s initial tour de force: succeeding in making us feel the emotions and the desires of her characters with recourse to neither dialogue nor voice-over. ”
Aimé Ancian, 2002.
