For one I actually enjoyed the american remake more than the original french , I remember finding Natalie so slow I turned it off . This is a fun sexy film [ although Liam neeson is looking rather wax work ] . A woman believes her husband is having an affair and so hires a prostitute to find out . Its all very 1950s melodrama [ where was Joan Crawford ] but also great fun . Not an oscar film , but kind to open a bottle of wine , sit with your partner and enjoy [ just as films like fatal attraction were adult and fun , then so is this .] Admire Julianne Moore as she will always take on an interesting role [ Boogie nights , Pippa leigh , savage grace etc ] and that she is prepared to actually be an older yet still sexy woman .
