Well received in France, given the cold shoulder when it came out in this country, this film has rebounded among some viewers. It is the story of a pair of amorous young lovers, him pondering his career as an author, her trying desperately to help, going mad in the process. The film’s eroticism seems earnest, however, the young lovers care more for each other sexually than they do psychologically. It is the source of their tragic downfall, yet it is also what makes them so compelling. The film has some great-looking cinematography. Rated R for nudity and sex.
