Cleverly written by Jérôme Tonnerre, well-scored by Pascal Estève and meticulously directed, Leconte’s romantic-erotic comedy of errors brings together chalk and cheese, fire and ice, in a musty, bourgeois Parisian apartment, as Bonnaire’s effusive neurotic Anna mistakes Luchini’s reticent tax accountant William for a psychologist and begins to confide the intimate details of her unhappy life story. One of the film’s main pleasures is observing the superb Luchini mutate slowly from dumb-struck astonishment to shifting uncertainty then brazen deceit. Overall, an intriguing, sophisticated, if relatively modest, entertainment.
