It is a bleak film, but it is also a romantic film with a powerful visual style. We can also appreciate its awareness of thernmasterpieces of French literature as it quotes them throughout the film. There is a strong sense ofrneveryday life, which is almost too familiar and special attention is given to post-warrnFrench film culture.rnrn
