The case photos and blurb of plot synopsis seem to indicate that this film is going to be a sad downer. The doctor tells computer language expert Jacques Dutronc that his brain is rapidly perishing. Then Jacques meets beautiful Sophie Marceau, in the clutches of a group of oddballs who use her in a club act where she is hypnotized and then addresses very intimate insights to various club patrons. As Jacques and Sophie fall in love, she realizes he is deteriorating. And brief flashbacks reveal their traumatic childhoods. (That's enough plot to engage you, I hope.)

Yet the movie is a comedy! Jacques with his off the track verbiage, his antic behavior. Sophie contending with him and her hangers-on. The "Stephen King" hotel clerk and bellhop.

And the images on screen are so brilliant! Wonderful colorful cinematography, with ingenious Zulawski capturing just what he wants, hang the expense. Though used sparingly, the music is beautifully emotional. And Sophie's high fashion dresses are as outrageous as Brazilian parrots.

Oh, she's so pretty. And Dutronc, slight of frame, long faced, rather worn with age, eyes bluer than ever, obviously feels his role fits him to a T.

This movie just has to flow over you. Let it! Twenty-four hours later, I am still elated.

FOOTNOTE: This film is based on a prize-winning novel (not available in English) from the mid 80's by the then trendy author Raphaelle Billetdoux. After her father's death, she dropped out for 10 years, then re-emerged in the niche of homeopathy premised on the poisonous serpent in each of us that prompts bad behavior and real illness. I bet Zulawski is intrigued.
