I swear this movie have been pending on my list since its release. Back in 2002 many things were happening in my life that for some reason I missed this movie on "French Film Festival" held on my country every year. So this movie just shoveled itself and reemerged today by me "scrolling movies" on Youtube. There it was, and I couldn't be more impressed.

Make no mistakes, you have no idea what is going on and what this movie is about until the very half, you might have some sort of idea that things are not what they seem to be, but is french cinema and you are used that things are different. It starts as a love story, and we are so used to the usual cinema that uses the colors, and the music to let us know "Hey this is a thriller, Hey this is a scary movie, Hey, this is a love story" . But this one have the music, the colors, the love story painted all over, the drama, and it just got a twist that makes you think that it can happen, to you, to anybody. Audrie Tatou plays the role of Angelique, a talented artist immersed in the drama of her love story with Loic Le Garrec (Samuel Le Bihan), she seems to be very persuasive and hopeful that her love story with the married cardiologist will come to a successful end. When things get a very dramatic turn, the movie does a literal rewind and we get to see the story from the Doctor's point of view, which kinda makes you check your reactions, should you laugh about the whole thing?, will things get worse? . The very end is insanely creepy and makes you applaud her amazing performance.
