The first time I saw this, I didn’t know what I was getting into. I didn’t know that Sandrine Bonnaire is one of the world’s most brilliant actresses. Her character kind of convinced me that she was stupid in real life. However, rewatching it a year later, it was very apparent that Sandrine acted the heck out of it and is a very great actress.
Supporting cast is also great: Isabelle Huppert, Jacqueline Bisset, and Virginie Ledoyen.
Claude Chabrol's masterpiece.
