Storyline

Sarah, an actress nearing 40, has invited the woman who has been her best friend for 16 years and two younger women to her vacation retreat in Provence. There are the simple pleasures of lounging in adjacent hammocks, the sun, the food, conversations about men. This is prologue for what happened a year ago in Paris with a man Sarah has long taken for granted as a platonic friend. She had just finished a film, also finishing her liaison with the director, and was about to get an award and start work on a new film and begin a romance with a German writer.

Poor France
2 December 1999 | by philippe-9See all my reviews

How dare anybody make such a bad movie. This is the kind of foreign film that turns off the American public. This is bad bad bad, not talent whatsoever. Jeanne Moreau is narcissic to the point where she is ridiculous. How dare she thinks that her life and problems deserve to be put in a movie. Poor thing.

I'm French, educated and action movies are not what I particularly watch, but I really draw a limit somewhere.
