Are you over hating France yet? Good, because you don't want to miss this sweet and sexy French pastry. Staid, reclusive Charlotte Rampling stars in this slow but steady story of a British crime novelist who retreats to the French countryside to work on her next book. She's soon interrupted by her publisher's wild-child daughter (Ludivine Sagnier), who lounges poolside by day and sleeps with strange men at night.
Then some dark stuff, which we won't tell you about, rises to the surface. Rampling's stuffy performance is fine, but it's Sagnier's sexually charged, emotionally messed-up turn that makes this tale a juicy one. And we haven't even gotten to the curveball ending yet...oh, um, forget we said that.
