La Fidelite Reviews

    This is a great movie by Sophie Marceau and Canet, I think it is one of most developed Character played by Marceau, the conflict between desire and the rationality, Canet is quite charming in the movie and rebellious, really love it!

    A hotshot avant-garde photographer with time-honored principles who has never known love decides to marry an adoring suitor anyway, then meets a talented, impulsive, and reckless photojournalist who tempts her wild side. Can she stay faithful to her vows while she yearns for real happiness? Andrzej Zulawski finally reigns in his over-the-top tendencies to make a film I felt was worth watching, while still cutting loose for a couple crazy action sequences. I must concede that he always pushes former spouse Sophie Marceau further than other directors, and while her character can be frustratingly difficult to figure out, she remains compelling all the same. No grand revelations about the human condition other than happiness is merely an illusory defensive shield, but if you've watched Zulawski before you know that already. 2:40 is an extremely long time to delve into relationship and moral angst but I was involved enough that it went by at a relatively crisp pace, greatly assisted by some stimulating frame composition.

    nothing speical with it. sometimes even incoherent. its a bit long and wanted to show different themes at once. but it made me sad. sometimes you shouldnt watch when You are not in good mood.

    La belleza de Sophie Marceu podria bastar para ver este film que es uno de los más rebuscados que he visto ultimamente, con elementos forzados (ej. secuencia de acción) con dialogos pretenciosos y confusos y con una historia que no cuaja y cae en lo cursi.

    A piece of art. Rich in detail and wonderful camera shots. Marceau is the chérie on top.

    Apparently too long with so many subtexts (as most French movies do). Some puzzling scenario/ scenes as French's typical emotion overwhelming sense practice. The over-the-top acting by Sophie Marceau & Pascal Greggory further worsen it. A decent film, if otherwise.

    overall, i think it's an ok film. there's a lot of things i hated and a lot of little ones, i liked. sophie was good but the whole performance lacked cohesion and integrity. the script was also too much mess and there were too many random scenes and so the whole film was waaaay too long...
