No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
It might be well-crafted and well-acted, but it's still an unintentionally laughable film about an older man getting into an attractive younger girl's pants.
Jeremy Irons is miscast in this pseudo-steamy menage a trois, with Juliette Binoche at the center between father and son (Rupert Graves).
Gripping, twisting and worth seeing again.
