Romantic comedy with a French accent and a love letter to theater both describe the French-language False Confessions (Les Fausses Confidences), the last film by Swiss film, theater and opera director Luc Bondy. Bondy re-sets Marivaux’s 18th century classical play about love, “Les Fausses Confidences,” in modern-day Paris, and stars Oscar-nominee Isabelle Huppert (Elle) and Louis Garrel as the would-be lovers at the center of all the twists and deceits.

Fans of director Bondy, writer Marivaux, the film’s star Isabelle Huppert or just theater in general, will find much to like in this enjoyable, clever film adaption. Passions, doubts, jealousies and tempers are all aroused in this dizzy, funny tale, in a production that blends film and theater in a creative fashion.
