Nathalie Reviews

April 28, 2006
... the conceit works beautifully with the right personalities, talented and uninhibited, engaged in its execution.

Exceptional performances and the oh-so-Frenchness of the complications produce an erotic tale that plays like the best gossipy story you ever heard about people you thought you knew.

Nathalie... offers compelling food for thought, with a little visual stimulation thrown in on the side.

Beguiling and surprising.

Between the leonine Ardant, the streets of Paris, and the nearly hypnotic score by Michael Nyman, the sophisticated Nathalie oozes with elegance.

The film's considerable eroticism is all in the atmosphere and the dialogue.

Deals with the impleasantries of sexual behavior without submitting to the level of cheap softcore theatrics.

A stylish, sharply observed erotic mystery.

A decent import with a nice ending -- and you couldn't ask for better acting talent.

As a rather naughty slice of erotica it works brilliantly, with Ardant and Bart making a fascinating partnership.

Underwhelming ending and all, Nathalie... remains a powerful exploration of jealousy and desire.
