This movie has been out of print for years with the last copy coming out in the USA being in the VHS format and in full screen not wide screen format. The only way to see this movie now is to import a copy for Europe that only plays on PAL compatible players which is pretty hard to find around here. Or, you could download a torrent for it which is practically impossible too. I'm glad to have gotten a copy of this movie, but unfortunately the movie itself is not very good.

The main plot of the movie is its about a reader that puts her ad in the paper and she interacts with several clients and reads to them. Everyone she works for pretty much becomes attracted to her and sexual encounters insue. Miou-Miou is the main character Constance/Marie and she does a great job mostly because she has that innocent look to her. The movie at times is quite erotic with the last twenty minutes borderlining on the pornographic.

The movie moves at a decent pace, but nothing really happens. The main character has all these interactions, but nothing comes from any of them. I can't recommend this movie really because it's impossible to find, but if you interested hit me up I still have my copy I can let you borrow!

nette exercice de style, wenngleich etwas artifiziell

Unfortunately no Post....too bad, cause Miou-Miou is just a cutie. What Babette's Feast does for the food industry this does for the literary types. Sex, Lies and Balzac.
A must see for anyone who reads avidly.

One of the most sexy movies I have seen! The sensuality is excellent! You should see it with your love one...

Wonderful french film...with a style and humour that only the french can combine

As Time Out once memorably said: "one for the poseurs, the penseurs and the voyeurs". Stories within stories and stories about storytelling. Miou-Miou exudes gallic sensuality throughout. Recommended.
