Three French films in three days?
Yeah. I know.
Kristin Scott Thomas shines in this 'very French' film about a bourgeois married woman who falls in love with another man (her Spanish builder). There are some predictable elements in the storyline, but the performances really keep you captivated. Scott Thomas is brilliant as the woman hopelessly, desperately in love. A passion that turns close to obsession as she gives up everything to be with her lover.
Oh and the sex scenes, well, they're pretty INTENSE.
I give it ***
