Superb emotional study of young woman- one of Jane B.'s strongerst performances.
8 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

There are all kinds of films for all kinds of people. This film is not "Batman" or "Star Wars"- it is for people interested in great dramatic film that explores character.

Somewhat like Polanski's _Repulsion_, this film explores the mental breakdown of a young woman. It is a revealing and insightful portrayal of this woman's psyche, her deep need for love and her psychotic response to the inhumanity of her family.

It is also a chance to see the great Jane Birkin giving an extreme and wonderful performance in her native language.

A powerful and moving dramatic experience.
