A hauntingly honest and provocative look at what an all-consuming love can in fact consume.

Rouan's writing, as far as can be judged from subtitles, is pointed and vital. Her performance is superb.

By the end of the film, we have come to admire Rouan's courage as a performer and a filmmaker, in following Diane's mania as far as it will go.
