Elliptical tale of a World War II triangle (and its aftermath) in which a Belgian woman falls for a French-speaking Resistance leader while her husband, an idealistic Flemish-speaking nationalist, is serving on the eastern front as a volunteer with the German SS. Delicately shaded and much less schematic than it sounds, it still emerges as little more than a specifically Belgian/Flemish rehash of the usual traumas. Exquisitely shot, but a disappointment from the usually evocative and subtle Delvaux.
