The winner of the Best Screenplay award at the Cannes Film Festival, <I>Comme Une Image </I>is French filmmaking at its most erudite. This sophisticated and illuminating film, 'a gem of comic melancholy' (variety), takes a long look at the relationships between a famous, egotistical author, his daughter, an opera student desperate to attract his approval, and her shy French-Arab boyfriend. Set in the milieu of arty, bourgeois Paris, it's witty-the script will have you half-smiling, half-grimacing in recognition at its warts-and-all-characters- and insightful, particularly on the corrupting influence of celebrity.
