    A noble attempt, but fails.

    Anne Parillaud, as the director in the film, is somewhat interesting but otherwise this film falls flat. It is tedious and overblown melodrama. The actors are not engaging and neither is the story. Or maybe I'm just getting too old for this. If you want to see a good French film about the drama and conflict of the making of a commercial motion picture, see DAY FOR NIGHT by Francois Truffaut.¿

    Usual French Film

    As usual, this film has the independent flavor of a french film: sex disguised as art. I don't think I am prejudiced against the French, it's just when you are dealing with sex, just put out. Not to say the male lead didn't do that!
