AN AFFAIR OF LOVE
Nathalie Baye (
The Return of Martin Guerre
) and Sergi Lopez (
) star in this intelligent account of erotic fantasy turning to emotional attachment. What begins as a deliberately anonymous sexual affair becomes more complex and meaningful as the participants realize the growing love between them. "...so much of
understated power is derived from its mastery of small details, its grasp of how seemingly insignificant gestures and comments can have life-altering ramifications" (Nathan Rabin,
The Onion A.V. Club
). In French with English subtitles.
Frederic Fonteyne---France---1999---78 mins.
