This is a very weird movie. It starts and ends as a courtroom drama, but between it shows a confusing array of human relations .. from the indicted threesome (whose story later becomes the main part of the film) to complex amorous dealings between "district attorney" (or what it's called in French) and the judge, which includes mountaineering on Mont Blanc.
Lots of real-like emotions, and many more bewildering. I keep discovering more beauties in Lelouch's works, and at the same time wonder more and more how much that France he pictures (or more precisely, the behavior of the people) is drifting out of understanding from me, like it was a different planet (and I live just a 2 hours train ride from France..) Recommended very much, if you like to experience the unexperienced - and that's what movies are for, aren't they?
