Description Luc Bondy's final feature film as director draws talent from both stage and screen to bring Pierre de Marivaux's 1737 play into 21st century Paris. Isabelle Huppert commands the screen as Araminte, the wealthy widow who unwittingly hires the smitten Dorante (Louis Garrel) as her accountant. Secrets and lies accumulate as Dorante and his accomplice, Araminte's manservant Dubois (Yves Jacques), manipulate not only the good-hearted Araminte, but also her friend and confidante, Marton (Manon Combes). Dorante, by turns pitiable and proficient, but always deferential to his social better, walks a fine line in his quest to arouse an equal desire in the object of his affections. Bulle Ogier delivers a memorable turn as Araminte's mother, who suspects the young man's intentions, but wants to push her daughter into the arms of an aged, hard-up Count (Jean-Pierre Malo). Filmed in part on-site at the Théâtre de l'Odéon-and shot during the daytime, while the same cast performed the play there at night-the film blurs the distinction between stage and screen, offering a new turn on this classic take on the psychology of love.

I was very skeptical about this film. I'm a feminist and have been a fan of its director since the beginning of its release. And I didn't really think I'd like it, but after seeing it I can see why I liked it so much. This is a film that can be seen from several different angles. There is the family, the friends, the friend of the family, the victim, the detective. and the film doesn't treat any of them in a linear fashion. For example, the detective, played by Isabelle Huppert, is not just the victim of the father's murder, but the cop. She doesn't need to kill him. She can use this information to solve the case, and she does. It is this aspect of the film that makes it so hard for me to recommend it. There are no easy answers, there are no simple plots, there are no winners and losers. I think the film is a combination of the things that make life interesting, from the relationships between the various characters to the unexpected twists that happen to each of them. The characters are not all likable, but I thought they all felt like real people. The movie is at its best when it is showing how it feels to be in a family with three generations of women, and the things that can happen when someone is a victim of a family tragedy. The film is also very clever in the way it tells the story of the murderer. The murder scene is not about what the murderer did, but what the killer did. If the film was less clever, it would be a lot of talk and not much action. The acting is good, the directing is good, and the screenplay is good. I'm glad I saw it, and I would recommend it to anyone.
