Review

"Gorgeous, Haunting & Fascinating... An Erotic Masterpiece" --DVD Times

Product Description

From The Writer/Director Of RIDICULE, MONSIEUR HIRE, THE GIRL ON THE BRIDGE, and THE HAIRDRESSER'S HUSBAND

From Oscar(r) nominated filmmaker Patrice Leconte comes this story of love, loss and memory that lingers like no other. It is the summer of 1958 in wealthy Lake Geneva, where an enigmatic young Frenchman (Hippolyte Girardot of JUMP TOMORROW and MANON OF THE SPRING) begins an affair with a beautiful starlet (stunning model Sandra Majani) under the watchful eye of her flamboyant elderly mentor (Jean-Pierre Marielle of COUP DE TORCHON and THE DA VINCI CODE). But in a season full of secrets, is truth the most elusive passion of all? Richard Bohringer (THE COOK, THE THIEF, HIS WIFE & HER LOVER) co-stars in the international hit that DVD Times calls "a spellbindingly erotic slice of nostalgia combining sensuous photography, a brilliant soundtrack and a trio of pitch-perfect performances."

EXTRAS:
"Leconte on Leconte Part 2" - Featurette with Director Patrice Leconte

5.0 out of 5 stars when beauty crosses your path ... June 30, 2009
Verified Purchase
I looked up Sandra Majani (who is Dutch, by the way, which is why she speaks French with a slight accent) at Imdb to see if this gloriously beautiful woman has made any more movies and came up dry. Apparently, when she disappears at the end of this story, it's for good in more than one way. What a pity! On the other hand, maybe a real nobleman made her an offer she couldn't refuse and she is now happily married with children living in a castle somewhere as the Countess De ___. My hat is off to Leconte for discovering her and casting her in this amazing and insightful movie and photographing her so beautifully. Insightful because it proves that when a woman of such astounding beauty crosses a man's path, it will be all about her so he better thank his lucky stars and pay attention, to everything. Be careful what you say and what you do, because Beauty is not on a level playing field with anyone. Fail to see that at your peril. (The fellow is advised in the movie to "watch her," to which I would have added "watch yourself too.")

Spoilers:

The "boy meets girl" part of the story happens by accident as is fitting. The "boy gets girl" part is nature taking its course. The mutual attraction is obvious and the two stars have excellent rapport. The "boy loses girl" part happens because he gets it into his head that he can behave like a jealous, demanding, possessive jerk and she'll just put up with it. Dude, what were you thinking? As the movie ends, all he has left are memories. Of course, a great poet like Baudelaire would have tranformed all that into glorious poetry (and did). How many people like that are there? Right ... none. Cinema will have to do for the time being.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Good April 8, 2014

There's nothing good in this movie, boring all the way thru.
nothing sexual at all, if there was nudity I missed it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous and evocative story of obsession. September 25, 2009
By Gayle
This film is very close to five stars for me. It is exquistely beautiful and lusciously erotic. For more than half the movie I was mesmerized. My reservation is that there are, probably deliberately, a lot of mysteries and unexplained bits that add up to some unnecessary confusion. I minded them more after the film was over than while I was caught up in its spell. Leconte has become a favorite director, and I also love The Girl on the Bridge, Monsieur Hire, The Hairdresser's Husband, and The Man on the Train.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ok Movie August 19, 2009
Verified Purchase
I bought this movie expecting some kind of nostalgia or sensuality but ended up feeling depressed. It didn't work for me and the picture quality was not all that great.
