| Distant Encounters That Draw You In
Until the final 20 minutes I was watching this drawn by the two main characters. Kristen Scott Thomas and Daniel Auteuil are (as always) superb and their performances rather than the catalyst character, well played by, Leila Bekhti are what keep you engrossed. Scott Thomas and Auteuil are so subtle in their performance that you do feel the emotion, as your own, that which simmers and then manages to just about bubble in both their emotionally closeted worlds. These performances give the revelations revealed or hinted at in the final 20 minutes a lot more power and make what would have been another decent, and very watchable, film about a mature older man becoming obsessed by a young woman and his and his wives helplessness in doing anything about it after too many years wrapped in wealth and family comforts a rather very good film and one that leaves you thinking about consequences and the fallibility of love.
