That said, beware! This film is NOT widescreen, and the transfer is terrible, from a dirty and scratched film. Chopping the sides of the film off also cut off part of the burned-in subtitles. This wonderful film deserves a better presentation!
She plays a burnt out pop star superbly, and the story is not at all what I expected based on the trailer, cover, or even synopsis. Very good examination of the relationship between her and the mentally imbalanced young girl who idolizes her to the point of obsession. Surprisingly realistic, not the run-of-the-mill celebrity worship story with predictable events like you would see in US made films of this genre.
Emmanuelle Seigner is also one of the few actresses who can't help but remain pretty even when she is supposed to be ugly - a good thing, and not a comment on her acting ability at all as she is excellent. She went on to further expand her career as a singer shortly after this film was made and had two albums ("Ultra Orange and Emmanuelle" in 2006, and then later "Dingue" under her own name in 2010) - both are actually pretty good.
Now 47 years old, she is still sexier than most women half her age and is the very definition of a natural beauty. If for no other reason, watch the film to see her.
and I was very much impressed by this gem when it aired recently on Sundance. I was hoping to download its signature song here, "Je ne partirai pas ce soir" (unsuccessfully) when I came across the first and only review. It helps to know French, I suppose, but it is a fine film indeed and I enjoyed it immensely ... despite my age and sex.
