A Flame in My Heart

Film

Time Out says

A folly from Tanner, scripted by its heavily emoting star Mézières, this tells the ludicrous tale of a woman who can never get what she wants, whether she's rehearsing Racine on stage or stripping in an immigrants' bar in Paris. She spends the first half of the movie trying to shake off an exceptionally persistent Arab lover, then picks up a journalist on the Métro and launches into an affair that takes her to Egypt. Ms Mézières' overheated performance would not be out of place in a Rosa von Praunheim movie; the embarrassment quotient is off the scale.
