I like foreign films. I do. So it was fitting that the first DVD I would rent with my Netflix membership would be French.
I didn't watch it all in one sitting (viewing time = nearly four hours in total). I didn't cry when a main character died. I didn't connect with the love story.
BUT. The story of selfishness and betrayal, anger and remorse. THAT, I connected with. In the end, 5 stars out of 5!
