The Accompanist (L' Accompagnatrice) Reviews
(1992) The Accompanist/ L' Accompagnatrice
(In French with English subtitles)
Takes place during WWII centering on Romane Bohringer as Sophie Vasseur who's just been hired as "The Accompanist" for a popular opera singer Irčne Brice (Elena Safonova). As she narrates her events subtly with Irene as well as her manager husband Charles Brice (Richard Bohringer). The reason why I said the genre is 'drama' is because although it takes place during the World War II time period, it's only used as a backdrop to the characters actual choices in life in general.
The only downside is that the film fails to convince viewers that the narrator Sophie is always hungry in search for food but it only plays a very small part of the actual set up to what was really happening between Irene and her husband.
3 out of 4 stars
*and i think Romane Bohringer is kinda cute! ;-)
