Patrick Dewaere was an exceptional actor and this was definitely one of his best performances. Blier did a terrific script and the directing. The ending is very powerful. A must see essentially for Dewaere performance.
Above average movie with great performance by Patrick Dewaere. What movie really lacks is sincere sex scene also fact that girl is only 14 but can feel, think and act way above her age making film not as realistic as it should be.
Patrick Dewaere turns in a superb performance as a grief-stricken man who after the death of his wife begins to entertain romantic notions from his step-daughter. An almost restrained film for Blier and sadly one of the last performances from Dewaere who committed suicide a year later.
An interesting and often disturbing film about the relationship between father and daughter and the results of the sexual tension that may come between them. This powerful film may leave you with a sick taste in your mouth, or it may give you a new angle from which to view sexuality among children.
