  1. 1. Un Coeur en Hiver ( A Heart in Winter ) starring Daniel Auteuil, Emmanuelle Béart, André Dussollier, Élisabeth Bourgine, Brigitte Catillon A Masterpiece Of Love Personal Review: Un Coeur en Hiver ( A Heart in Winter ) starring Daniel Auteuil, Emmanuelle Béart, André Dussollier, Élisabeth Bourgine, Brigitte Catillon Un Coeur en Hiver is a masterpiece in so many ways. It is a quiet film that draws you in and keeps you captivated for the full 105 minutes. At no point did I ever try to fast forward this film, including the gorgeous music sessions.
  2. 2. The story is love triangle between Maxime, the owner of a violin repair shop; Camille, a young and rising violinist; and Stephane, the humble artisan in the repair shop. Maxime is in love with Camille (absolutely stunning gorgeous Emmanuelle Béart). Camille begins to fall in love with stoic Stephane, while staying with Maxime. As the film progresses Camille shows more and more affection for Stephane. The twist, Stephane refuses her love. According to the DVD special feature interview with director Claude Sautet, this is Othello told from the perspective of Iago, or Stephane in this film. The reference to Shakespeare is wonderful, and those that love literature will love this film just for the reference. However, this is a film that requires absolutely no knowledge of that play to enjoy the beauty Sautet brought the screen. The music is absolutely stunning. Even if a person does not love classical music, the music playing moments are so perfect. Sautet uses the interludes where Camille plays the violin as rests or a changes in the story line; the timing is so exactly right. Apparently, Emmanuelle Béart spent a year taking violin lessons preparing for this part. The film is set in Paris at a time when service and appearances matter deeply. Stephane and Camille enter a crowded restaurant for a quick break during her recording session. There are no tables, so the maitred shows them to the bar. They order a cheese plate and a beer. A few moments later the bar tender leans over and says a table has just opened up. The try to take the plate and glass. The bartender stops them and has a waiter come over to deliver their food to the table. A small moment, a gracious moment, the kind of thing that happened in Paris all the time. People dressed nicely, they were polite to eachother, and service was number one. Not rated by the MPAA. Elsewhere in the world it is rated 12/13/14. There is no strong language in the subtitles. There is no nudity. There is no violence. There is one somewhat senuous scene where a nude female back is shown in bed, but nobody else is in that bed (a chaste but senuous scene because of what the imagination says happened - thats the most powerful type of this scene). The film is very far from R rated, it might be PG-13, but if the MPAA were honest, this is a PG film. In French with English subtitles that can be turned off. No English soundtrack. The bonus features on this DVD are very interesting. Again Europeans seem to understand how to pack useful things onto DVDs. Theres a couple of old news clips from French Television (TF1, when it existed). The best are the interviews with the director. He explains some interesting backdrops to this film. I found them worthwhile. A masterpiece that doesnt require special acquired tastes to view. A person can simply start this film, sit back and be entertained. Sautet takes
