If you can do without a couple of murders, three or four serious beatings, a couple of grasping, panting, partly clothed sex scenes, and five dozen f bombs, then you will enjoy this movie. If you must have those things in your movies, then go watch Lethal Weapon 10 or Die Hard 12 or some other Hollywood drivel, because you wont like this. It is a very good movie with a rather tragic storyline that develops slowly, then comes together quickly, almost frantically at the end. I like it, considered it a good movie, but not a great one. It had more loose ends than a bowl of spaghetti. The girl Sylvie seemed far more pragmatic, and responsible than to do what she did at the very end. In her first scene she talked about going to graduate school and didn’t seem to be the kind of girl who would settle easily, or be swept off her feet by a stranger that was withdrawn, secretive, and that she barely knew. She seemed very responsible to her father and worked in his café. She had only known Paul for a week when the movie ended. And what was Paul going to say to his mother? Surely, he would have taken Madeline’s advice, and let the past be past, but he certainly was going to have some explaining to do about where he was for a week just a few days after his father's funeral. . And where was Paul’s mother long ago when Len brought Paul with him when came to see Madeline to attempt to recover their relationship? And I never did understand the significance of the bag of pearls, which was really a pearl necklace in a jeweler’s bag. It did serve a purpose in the storyline – to throw us off as to the kind of “treasure” that was really in the house in Southwest France. However, why did Madeline give them to Paul at the end? What kind of special meaning did they have to Len and Madeline? It is well worth watching – good, but not great. I think it could have been enhanced substantially with a few flashbacks of scenes with Len and Madeline to develop the “love of a life” that they obviously were to each other. Even with the ending, it is still a tragedy, not a romance since almost nothing was done to develop the love between Sylvie and Paul, another weakness in the movie.
