The star who fell to Earth
8 August 2008 | by See all my reviews

Marc and Laurent ,two dropouts, land up in a desirable property.Much to Marc's surprise,this luxurious mansion belongs to her idol ,Jessica Melrose,the famous star.Then she appears but she does not see them and she goes to sleep .When she awakes in the morning,a curious game begins.Marc has the actress play a strange part where he assuages his phantasms .He seems a sexually repressed man and to meet a sex symbol is something completely mad.For the woman,to get rid of these intruders becomes vital.She tries to warn her chamber maid ,but she can't carry out her plan .

A bit derivative,but acting is quite good,particularly François Cluzet and Fanny Ardant,ideally cast as the star.
