No, it’s not quite that bad, but veteran French filmmaker André Techiné’s drama about love and obsession in contemporary Venice is a bit too dry for its own good. A successful writer of crime fiction (André Dussolier) relocates to an island near that fabled Italian city to work on a new book, but his new wife, an enigmatic local real estate agent (Carole Bouquet), makes him jealous to the point of having her followed. Enter a cast of unscrupulous, colorful – but neither unscrupulous nor colorful enough – characters. Chief among them is a young ex-con (Mauro Conte) who has a few troubles of his own. As usual, Téchiné (The Witnesses, Wild Reeds) excels in his direction of actors, but the screenplay – he wrote it with Mehdi Ben Attia, from a novel by Philippe Djian – lets everyone down. Costarring Mélanie Thierry and Adriana Asti. (111 min.)
