Under the Sand
aka Sous le sable
First screened in August 2001 / Most recently screened in June 2014
Director: François Ozon. Cast: Charlotte Rampling, Bruno Cremer, Jacques Nolot, Alexandra Stewart, Andrée Tainsy, Pierre Vernier, David Portugais, Damien Abbou, Pierre Soubestre, Fabienne Luchetti. Screenplay: Emmanuèle Bernheim, François Ozon, Marcia Romano, and Marina de Van.

Twitter Capsule: Breakthrough and anomaly for Ozon, who rarely shows such quiet patience. Rampling rewards every ounce of attention.

VOR:   A major, major performance. Great case for allegory: more straightforward movies rarely see this far into partner addiction.
