Mademoiselle Chambon: Magnifique
"Mademoiselle Chambon" is a movie that lingers. The camera lingers on the actors' faces, the lush landscape, the charming provincial French town. The sound track lingers on the haunting violin music by composer Ferenc von Vecsey. In fact, it's difficult to image the movie without the music.
Who is Mademoiselle Chambon? Unless there's a sequel, which is as likely as a French version of "Batman" (L'Homme de Batte, n'est pas?) we will never know. But that won't stop us from speculating long after this flick is finished.
As always, the Movie Slut doesn't give the plot away, but she will say that this movie is what "The Bridges of Madison County" should have been. The plot is a simple one, but the subject couldn't be more complex. C'est bon.
