Even though the focus [of the film] is on a very focused and precise period of French history, it’s had its repercussions over the years, and this film talks about how history remains in our collective bloodstreams for a very, very long time. That’s why it’s important to keep talking about these things.

Scott Thomas is mesmerisingly beautiful, but she refers to herself as an “ageing actress” and keeps saying, “I’m terribly old” or, “I’m positively ancient.” In fact, being ancient might make things slightly easier, for she adds, “I’m sort of, as the French would say, ‘stuck between two chairs’, because I’m no longer 40 and sort of a seductress, and I’m not yet a granny.” [x]
