Movie Info

The internationally produced The Lacemaker (La Dentelliere) stars Isabelle Huppert as Pomme, a meek and mild French beautician whose life takes a fateful turn during a vacation to Normandy. Here Huppert becomes the lover of middle-class literature-student Francois (Yves Beneyton). The relationship sours when Francois takes her home to meet his parents, thanks in no small part to their differing social backgrounds. The Lacemaker was the film that solidified the stardom of Isabelle Huppert; she was showered with awards, most notably the British Film Academy. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Isabelle Huppert is lovely. The diversity of emotions in her expression is wonderful to watch.

Pomme seems too introverted, her friends too intellectual and ridiculous, and François himself is poorly defined. They all form a schematic ensemble that neither the script nor the director wanted to delve into. [Full Review in Spanish]

Isabelle Huppert's performance as a prety, tongue-tied girl who can't verbally express her feelings is the best reason to see this French film.
