an unusual character
22 January 1999 | by See all my reviews

Sandrine Kimberlain is good in this movie, her character fits her really well. The whole movie is her quest, she tries to find something that is probably inside her. We don't really know if she'll someday find it but there is a little hope. Feelings and sentiments are very powerful. The characters are all so different that it gives a reality to the movie, even if Kimberlain's character is sometimes hard to comprehend. I could accept her actions and reactions even if I would act and react differently.
