"Please bare in mind i know nothing of the original novel or other filmed versions of this story.The dvd came free with a newspaper & after reading 2 poor reviews i very nearly didn`t watch it.In fact the only reason i did is because i`d seen Huppert in The Piano Teacher many years ago.It`s a similarly cold performance(which may/will put some viewers off),not quite as cruel as in that film but i presume Michael Haneke saw her in this before casting.Also mentioned in the TO review above is Balmer who also gives a noteworthy performance.One of the reviews i read on amazon mentioned time & again how boring this film is but i personally wasn`t bored for one minute,Huppert seems to me one of the very best actresses on the planet,Meryl Streep eat your heart out! seriously! and i like Meryl Streep.The only other film by Claude Chabrol i`ve seen is Le Boucher,which i loved,but this is a costume drama and not a very happy one,so if you`ve read this review you know what to expect! The film loses one star for the narrator,who i had a small problem with."
