In my quest to see more of the gorgeous Monica Bellucci I snapped up a copy of this little French 'romantic thriller' and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the story. The plot deals with elements of infatuation , deception, and obsession amonst a group of, essentially, four indiviuals (2 men & 2 women) and the complexities of their past, present, and future relationships with each other. The tension of the film is created by a lot of unrequited passions as the characters sort of chase one another around attempting to make a connection of one kind or another. There are some clever Tarantino-esque time shifting editting techniques that add to the sense of a jigsaw puzzle of plot elements ultimately coming together to a cohesive ending, of sorts, that is satisfying and frustrating at the same time. Bellucci is lovely, as always, though this is not one of her steamier roles (no nudity) - still she heats up the screen whenever she is in the scene. The film has a decidedly European feel to it - a refreshing change from Hollywood cliches - in French language w/ English subtitles - an engrossing and entertaining watch.
