Item Description
“For fans of Huppert's, this film really should be seen. Many of Huppert's later roles encompass much bolder behaviour ("The Piano Teacher," and "The School of Flesh" for example), but "The Lacemaker" shows Huppert acting her heart out in the role of a subdued, sensitive 18-year-old. If you can get your hands on a copy of this film, it's definitely worth watching.” “displacedhuman,” Amazon Reviews

"Huppert is brilliant in this very sad love story.” Dennis Littrell, Online Reviews
