"Although not usually being a fan of foreign film (due to an antipathy of subtitles caused by cataracts in both my eyes) I do not go as far as to boycott them. And am I glad that I don't, because if I did I would never have catched this gem of a film.

Gérard Depardieu (and with him as always his large aquiline nose) plays a role which is quite a departure from those he has played in Hollywood romantic comedys. He is Henri Renault, poet and advertisment jingle composer, who developes an obssession for his neighbour, a beautiful post-op transsexual named Chloe (Fanny Ardant).

Before long his obssession becomes dangerous as she spurns his advances and he slowly begins to mentally unravel unleashing his psychopathic alter ego 'Robert Schumann' (a former French Prime Minister) who is out for European integration and revenge.

This movie is not for the faint hearted, there are some strongs scenes, including one which involve garlic and cheese employed in an unconventional manner. However the skilful direction and acting, especially Depardieu's performance, astounding considering he was recently bereaved as his boyfriend Michelle died a month before filming, make this an unparalleled psychological thriller."

--Arnold Strong
