stylish, witty, wacky & wierd
This French-American comedy produced by Merchant Ivory (but nothing like their usual staid fare) is totally unpredictable - you never know what's coming next. It's hard to talk about the plot without giving anything away, since there are so many twists and turns - but it all fits together perfectly at the end. The actors are great. Stanislas Merhar (Dry Cleaning) shows that he's great at comedy too, and he's still really cute. What can be said about Dianne Wiest - she's always so great. Jane Birkin is stupendous and so is Bulle Ogier, who I saw and loved in "Gang of Four" by Jacques Rivette. Definitely go see it or rent it when it comes out - you'll be surprised how much fun you'll have. I can't wait to see it again!
