2.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully done movie with a lousy screenplay Jan. 29 2004
Format:DVD
well, when you saw from the balcony that old gardener studied the suspicious newly digged ground, and in order to distract him, you showed your breasts to him and lie down naked in the 2nd floor bed, awaiting him to come up to do the consenting adult stuff? you'd be assured that he would never go back to the garden to investigate again? well, it's a plainly stupid logic by a supposed to be sophisticated MYSTERY writer. give me a break! well, if you finally decided to slap your old lover/agent/publisher, and sent the manuscript to other publisher and published it, and then walked out on him, you'd thought that you were still entitled to go back to his house in france? give me a break! at the very beginning, this is a such nicely shot movie, but then, well, i have to sigh a long long sigh, it gradually coming apart with ridiculous plot. this is typically what most of the so-called female mystery writers' poor logic that almost made 99% of their creations simple-mindedly naive and unreadable. if murders or man slaughters are so easy to write off just by showing your naked body, then most of the police detectives would not have to use labs and guns, just make sure their fly zippers won't get jammed during zip-downs. give me a break.

5.0 out of 5 stars I recommend this film July 19 2004
Format:DVD
This film gets your attention from A to Z . Charlotte Rampling's
play is excellent and sustains perfectly an interesting scenario.
Ludivine Sagnier is not masterful but plays well her part.
Although this film has it's nude and erotic moments
you should buy another film if this is only what you are looking for.
The film is not a 'nail biter ' but, always intelligent and
sensitive, it will not let you down. The conclusion of the
film is not perfect, but certainly interesting.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good,,but,,,what just happened? July 18 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This movie was good but what just happened? Why is Julie two different people? One in braces and the one we saw all through the movie. Are they one in the same? Why is she waving at both of them ?

5.0 out of 5 stars doesn't make sense, but doesn't have to July 17 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
it's true: you can watch this film x number of times and still not know what happened. i don't think the director or writer knows, either, because there really isn't one logically consistent explanation. but who cares. it's about a fiction writer and the creative process, so we shouldn't be surprised if the film blurs the line between fact and fiction. besides, sagnier is drop-dead gorgeous to watch. so no complaints here.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tres Bien July 12 2004
Format:DVD
Hmmm, I really don't think this movie qualifies so much as a thriller but rather as some type of psychological mystery piece. And I must admit I feel a bit deceived as I anticipated more overt sexuality in the movie. But, then again, there is Ludivine Sagnier, who is truly one of God's greater successes in terms of physiology. Even though the movie drifted, and I still am not sure what exactly occurred -- if you see the movie I'll bet you have similar feelings -- it is still worth the price of admission, or purchase price, just to have Sagnier in your library.

3.0 out of 5 stars Huh, wha? July 10 2004
By lb136
Format:DVD
A pretentious film that's lovely to look at for the most part.
Charlotte Rampling, blocked British mystery writer, borrows the country home of her publisher in order to unblock herself. Rampling, upon arrival, does her smirky smile thing. She carefully assembles her laptop and goes to work. She eats something that resembles yogurt. She discovers the swimming pool, covered, and leaves it that way.
Eventually the publisher's daughter Julie turns up. She's French hottie Ludovine Sagnier. A young blonde with a narrow triangular face and classic nose (when shot in profile you'll maybe think she has features that really belong on the front of a coin), she lives a messy life and upsets the orderly Rampling more than somewhat. She uncovers the swimming pool and skinnydips about among the leaves that have collected. At this point the movie comes to life for a while. Probably you'll enjoy the scenes in which Ms. Sagnier romps around in various states of undress.
Eventually, there is (perhaps) a murder. Eventually Rampling loosens up and unlooses the inner writer in her. Or maybe the inner plagiarist.
By then, you probably won't care very much.
Notes and asides: There is no director commentary. There are 11 minutes of deleted scenes. Ms. Sagnier does not appear in them. Since there was no reason to have included them in the first place, this is a complete waste of time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quiet but fascinating thriller. July 10 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
It is difficult to discuss the movie without giving out spoilers. This is an interesting story that moves deftly between fact and fancy. It is about a successful writer who is in a personal bad moment, tries to go to rest and get her inspiration for a new book. It has its flaws, for example the excessively direct metaphor of the writer's eager eating, hinting to repressed sexuality. The writer of course is the incomparable and beautiful slim Charlotte Rampling, a treat to any cinema fan. She looks ravishing. So does the director's favorite actress, Ludivine Seignier. I think that she gives a perfect performance as the brash and ultimately troubled person who sparks in Rampling's character a number of reactions, professional and otherwise. I don't give it five stars because at some place the story becomes a bit sloppy and unnecessarily gruesome. In the assets of the film I'd put the candid depiction of the girl making love with a boy -her on top- she picks up -within the writer's longing sight-. It is excellent that actors don't shirk from showing on the screen fundamental facts of life, and this must be assumed with naturalness. The score also is very exciting, of the "mysterious" king. The director -who is also the author of the script- achieves an excellent local atmosphere, perfectly convincing, and on the whole, a development from realism to eeriness quite pleasant and unsettling at places. I watched the film at the theater, where it is most effective, and liked it so much that I bought later the DVD. Very enjoyable.
