An Emmanuelle Béart Review

(4 out of 5 stars)
"I got the collection. I admit curiosity about Emmanuelle is what drove me to buy the set. "A Heart in Winter" AKA "Un Coeur En Hiver" - A weird ménage-á-trois involving Camille (Emmanuelle Béart), the violinist, Stéphane (Daniel Auteuil), a repairer of violins, and Maxime (André Dussollier), her lover. Stéphane is a social voyeur. A weird love triangle ensues. Watching it was divine and surprising in its outcome.
The second movie, "The Story of Marie and Julien" AKA "Histoire de Marie et Julien" is all the title implies. It is a biographical filmed story of how Marie (Emmanuelle Béart) and Julien (Jerzy Radziwilowicz) meet and how their interaction within a desperate family group develops over time as they all try to evade the feared Nazi and their eventual re-introduction into French society. I believe it to be a well developed story line with incidents that occurred then that could still occur in any part of our world.
The third and last movie of this set, "Nathalie". Talk about a Private Investigator story with a twist. Catherine (Fanny Ardant) believes that Bernard (Gérard Depardieu) has been unfaithful to her and hires Marlene (Emmanuelle Béart) to pose as Nathalie and ingratiate herself into Bernard's life and report back to her what she learns. The results will surprise and astound the most practiced afficionado of P.I. films.
The three films together earn four of five stars from me and induced me to obtain a couple more films by Emmanuelle Béart."
