I was bowled over by the performance of Isabelle Huppert in Coup de Foudre (1983). So I rented this film for 99-cents from my local vid shop to get the chance to see her again. I got my dollar's worth from my Isabelle Huppert fix, the movie could have been better. I'm sure the filmmaker thought he had plenty of interesting elements to work with here: two best friends (Pascal works all day, Mickey is a DJ at night) fall for the same girl, Viviane, and the setting - the action takes place at a ski resort (the play of warm sunshine despite the cold snow, the interplay of skiers ascending the mountain via tow ropes right in front of Pascal's house, etc.) Pascal is the cave man, an ex-jock whose interests include food, shelter (preferably sharing his bed with a warm woman), and nice clothes. Mickey is more evolved but is beset with self doubts and has trouble with his conscience. Viviane is a free spirit whose sexual experiences started at an early age. Sex is not a moral issue for her and it is something she is good at. The characters are drawn so thinly that you can watch the action, but not really believe or accept it. White subtitles are nasty superimposed on the snow. And I still don't know what Mickey was supposed to do with Pascal's present from Paris.
