Although it is possible that French actress Isabelle Huppert makes the occasional false move, she does not make them in front of a camera.

Husband and wife, upper-class couple Jean and Gabrielle Hervey, are played, to perfection, by two of France's premier film actors: Pascal Greggory and Isabelle Huppert.
