Lunes de fiel

With Kristin Scott Thomas, Hugh Grant, Emmanuelle Seigner, Peter Coyote, Victor Bannerjee, Stockard Channing
Running time 139min
Arguably Polanski’s most underrated movie, charting the fateful encounter, on a cruise, of a wealthy, terribly nice English couple (Scott Thomas and Grant) and a beautiful young woman (Seigner) and her wheelchair-bound husband (Coyote), who insist on relating the lurid history of their relationship. A wickedly comic, deftly ironic account of erotic obsession and manipulation, deepened by insights into the varieties of love and our fascination with other people’s stories.
