Movie Info

A country hotel's blue room is the scene of erotic rapture, but the adulterous man (Amalric) and woman (a boldly sexual Stéphanie Cléau) who meet there have different visions of their future. She is more obsessed than he, and his misunderstanding of the madness in her desire will destroy him and all he holds dear. Amalric's direction is brutally spare, as is his performance of a man caught in a vise-a situation of his own making. The classic aspect ratio (1:33) and Grégoire Hetzel's turbulent,

This is a clipped, fragmented piece of cinematic modernism, shuffling its time frames in a staccato narrative that makes for a tense, involving experience from start to finish.
