The French have a way with steamy films that makes the rest of the cinematic world seem bland in comparison. NATHALIE is fine case in point. Based on an idea by Philippe Blasband and transformed into a superb screenplay by Jacques Fieschi, François-Olivier Rousseau and the director Anne Fontaine, this incredibly well acted, subtle, understated film explores the many facets of adultery - from the woman's point of view. The result is a suspenseful, erotic, intelligent film that provides an opportunity for three of France's greatest actors to demonstrate their credentials.

Catherine (the still very beautiful and gifted Fanny Ardant) is a gynecologist married to the successful Bernard (Gérard Depardieu in one of his more subtle roles) and they have a stay-at-home hippy son (Rodolphe Pauly) who goes about his life much the same as his parents: there is superficial companionship but little in depth relationship. The marriage seems satisfactory until Catherine suspects Bernard of having affairs, a fact that Bernard very honestly confesses to having: in his eyes the affairs are sexual dalliances that mean nothing. Catherine is shocked, attempts to gain some support from her insular but worldly mother (a fine Judith Magre) who tells Catherine it is a normal situation in older marriages.

Catherine visits a bar, a private club for consignations, and there she meets Marlène (the extraordinary Emmanuelle Béart) and eventually buys Marlène's services as a prostitute to meet her husband and then tell her all about the encounters. It is agreed that Marlène will be known as 'Nathalie'. From this point on Catherine and Nathalie meet after Nathalie has encounters with Bernard and describes the acts of the encounters in vivid and lurid detail.

If you were smitten by Emmanuelle Beart in Mission Impossible and want to see her at her sexiest... Nathalie is the movie for you. This is an intelligent erotic french film which features Marlene(Emmanuelle) as the "other" woman hired by Catherine(Fanny Ardant) to seduce her husband Bernard(Gerard Depardieu).

If you are seeing this movie as a Depardieu fan... his role is secondary. This movie is focused on the women characters.

The story is really about the sexual growth of Catherine as she becomes more obsessed with the erotic details of her husband's affair and her own realization about her inner self. What is so great about Fanny Ardant's performance is that by the end of the movie you become just as fascinated with her on both a human and erotic level as you are with Emmanuelle Beart. Ardant evokes a very intelligent sexual powerful character here and thus reminded me alot of another Catherine (Deneuve) at her best.

There is also an interesting twist to discover.

The elegant Catherine (Fanny Ardant) discovers her husband, Gerard Depardieu is doing what men do...having a "banal" affair. When Catherine asks her husband for details, her husband can't or won't provide them. Catherine hires a prostitute, the gorgeous Emmanuelle Beart, to seduce her husband and reveal her husband's erotic proclivities. Nathalie's ensuing tales of lust and passion propagate an understated sexual tension between her and Catherine that will make any viewer weak in the knees.

A surprisingly good movie. I didn't think there could be a more unlikely romance, but by the end of this film I was begging for Catherine and Nathalie to "just kiss already". What can I say? I'm a hopeless romantic. The erotic talk, the slow seduction, two gorgeous and intelligent women, scotch and cigarettes, broken hearts and understated lust, Paris, feminine vulnerability and strength...probably the most sexy movie I've seen. Recommended.

I was browsing the foreign movie section of my local library for something good to watch, and stumbled upon this movie. As soon as I saw this stars Fanny Ardant and Gerard Depardieu, that was good enough for me, and I picked it up.

"Nathalie..." (2003 release from France; 105 min.) brings the story of a married couple, Catherine (played by Fanny Ardant) and Bernard (played by Gerard Depardieu). As the movie opens, Catherine has organized a surprise birthday party but Bernard misses his connecting flight home. Soon Catherine learns that he spent the evening with another woman instead. Catherine decides to hire a call girl at a private bar, whom she names Nathalie (played by Emmanuelle Béart). Nathalie is to seduce Bernard and start a relationship with him, and in return Nathalie must report back to Catherine and provide all the details. Nathalie easily picks up Bernard. It is not long thereafter that things begin to change, both as between Catherine and Bernard, and as between Catherine and Nathalie. To tell you more would spoil your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Couple of comments: this movie is directed by Anne Fontaine, who later on would go on to direct "Coco Before Chanel" and last year's disastrous "Adore"/"Perfect Mothers"/"Two Mothers" (the movie was renamed for different parts of the world). Second, notwithstanding the racy subject matter, there is very little nudity in the movie (2 brief shots), but there is a lot of frank talk about sex, so if that is bothersome to you, do not watch this movie. Third, this movie is an interesting look at love and desire with and outside the bounds of marriage.
