Aro Recommended Intimate Strangers


aka: Confidences trop intimes
France 2004, 125 minutes
Dir. Patrice Leconte
In French with English subtitles
Rating: [M]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Comedy, Drama


Aroview: Another stylish excursion into suspensful romanticism for dir. Leconte (MONSIEUR HIRE), here premised on a woman's mistaken assumption that she is unveiling her marital troubles to a psychiatrist, when she has (perhaps deliberately?) walked into the office of a straight-laced accountant.

However, the two soon develop a certain ambiguous bond, two lost souls drawn by chance together, each both revealing and concealing their own emotional agendas. Bonnaire in particular delivers a superbly controlled performance, the film teasing out its story and insights with an audience-friendly smoothness.
