Movie Info

Juliette Binoche teams with Lambert Wilson in this erotic drama. Binoche plays Nina, the young lady friend of timid Paulot (Wadeck Stanczak). Though she intends to be true to Paulot, Nina falls hard for his roommate, Quentin (Wilson), a thoroughly self-centered actor who performs in live sex shows. After a torrid affair with Nina, Quentin dies under questionable circumstances. Nina's search for answers to Quentin's sudden death leads her to Scrutzler (Jean-Louis Trintignant), the theater director who'd once cast Quentin in +Romeo and Juliet. Scrutzler has likewise suffered a terrible loss in his life: his Juliet was also his wife, who also died unexpectedly. Apparently, it was the wife's death that led to Quentin's demise. On impulse, Scrutzler casts the inexperienced Nina as Juliet -- and before long, both unhappy souls find a common emotional ground.

  • Passion simply isn't the same as Binoche running around naked and mounting every guy she comes across

    I love this film. It is a dark and very powerful examination of love and sexual desire (very sensitive theme for some human minds) from the point of view of three emotionally scarred young people. The film is a lyrical and poetic exploration of love and loss, reality and fantasy. It is beautiful sexy and I can say an art-film. It won several prestigious international awards and is critically acclaimed. Juliette Binoche (very young and very beautiful at her first steps as an actress) is completely uninhibited and gives a great, brave and fearless performance. She bares herself completely...both emotionally and physically. For one more I say, this film is not intended for the immature. Those with childish minds who cannot handle looking at a beautiful woman's body (such as feminists or other philistines) are advised too avoid this film because of its theme. Nina (Juliette Binoche) moves to Paris and she becomes the love interest of three very different men and has concurrent relationships with each. Multiple plot and character lines develop from this. This movie will challenge you and you'll think of it days later.

    Dripping with moist bravado and sexual insight,a provocative illusion by Techine on the sharp edge of his career and beginning of creative roll.Binoche blasts the screen in a classic performance,commercial failure but critical applaud,post-modern theater/cinema interaction and one of the seminal films about sexual frustration and need.
