"Olivier, Olivier" is a superbly acted and thoroughly gripping story about a French family, the Duvals,who are rocked by the sudden disappearance of their 9 year old son, Olivier. He is sent on an errand to his grandmother's and never returns. However 6 years later Olivier resurfaces in Paris and is reunited with his family ,who are not entirely convinced that he is who he claims to be, least of all his sister Nadine. The characterisation in "Olivier, Olivier" is exquisite and the often fractious relationships between the various family members are portrayed quite brilliantly; Marina Golovine's Nadine and Brigitte Roüan's Elisabeth are the star turns. The plot keeps the viewers interest throughout and its erotic and supernatural elements further add to its richness.
