Bonjour Mr Carrière
I'm french too, and I bought this DVD edition of LA CHAIR DE L'ORCHIDEE. Unfortunatly the english subtitles are not optional, and the copy quality transfer is not realy good ... a pity that there's no french edition of this powerful film. But: thank you so much for your involvement, it was a great pleasure to watch this dark gem again. Charlotte R. and all the cast are perfect ...

Totally overrated film. Certainly not a gem. Charlotte Rampling is beautiful, yes, but just about it, she's way better in many other films of the same decade. Lovely to see Simone Signoret, just to say Hi! to her powerful presence before she fades in the background.
Anyway, the fascination of such intelligent persons, like Carriere, with a rancid and boring French bourgeoisie is beyond comprehension. All my three stars for Signoret.
