Not in a long time have I seen a movie like this one. Given the nature of the film, it is devastatingly haunting. The acting is moody and magnificent. The ending is mind blowing! Take an American man who is emotionally damaged in France and a truly French woman who cares for a dying teenager by day job and and entertains clients with s&m at night; who meet in a grocery shop at first not very successfully. How this proceeds is the basis of a well-developed plot. Well well worth watching this complex drama.
