Critic Reviews for Cousin, Cousine
This French comedy about an open adulterous affair was a smash hit in the U.S. and received three Oscar nominations, including Best Actress Marie-Christine Barrault; Schumacher's American remake makes clear why the original Gallic film is superior.
Audience Reviews for Cousin, Cousine
Do any of my Facebook friends remember this movie? Online it says it was very popular in the US in 1975. Rodd thinks peple just liked to see the actress's breasts. I liked the VERY 1970s soundtrack, but that was it for me.
Never have I seen so much chemistry in a movie as between Barrault and Lanoux, utterly stunning. The movie is not nearly as humorous as it tries to be though, and is let down by a weak ending which is either totally unsatisfying or deeply disturbing depending on how you choose to interpret it.
A well told and intermittently witty film. It is, however, personally difficult--if not impossible--to root for adulterers (no matter how "justified"), thereby stripping Cousin Cousine of a terrific amount of emotional appeal.
