film reunited Sophie Marceau with Polish director Andrzej Zulawski after
LOVE hit, the previous year. It is generally considered one
of the best movies ever made (listed in The Guardian's
Best 50 Movies of All Time). The story, loosely based on a novel by
Billetdoux, is about a couple who meet by chance in a seaside hotel
and end up spending three nights together.
Specifically, it begins with a man named Lucas - a genius who had developed
a computer language - learning he has a disease that causes his memory
to erode. As a result he is losing his ability to communicate. At a
seaside resort, Lucas meets Blanche, an unstable woman working as a
nightclub fortuneteller. The two begin an erratic relationship.

but she is probably best known in America for her Princess Isabelle
role in Braveheart. She also played Elektra King in the James
Bond movie The World is Not Enough.
