“Iu0026#39;ve just watched this film and, out of curiosity, the comments of several contributors to this bulletin board. Simply canu0026#39;t fathom the glowing enthusiasm of most of these – though I suppose they are self-selected from those who have actually been able to sit through it.To me it seemed phony, pretentious, and in the end unbelievably boring – both words here seem applicable alone as well as in tandem. Iu0026#39;m rather fond of Binoche, and this may have something to do with my impression that she found the role one that couldnu0026#39;t be played convincingly – that she as a result could only stumble through it sans conviction. Why did I then watch it through? In the hope of some saving grace – which I certainly failed to find in that silly resolution.”
