This is a very nice track. Itís a bit serious throughout, but it does have its lighter moments. Mr. Ozon is on the track throughout the movie, and his agent is there for the first half hour or so. Both actresses are there from about halfway through the movie. They all seem to be enjoying themselves even though everything seems more formal than it should be. One thing that I found funny, though, is that the director mentions his other movie, ĎWater Drops on Burning Rocksí about 68 times. Another interesting thing is that the director wanted all the actresses to look like Hollywood actresses from the Ď50s and Ď60s. Mrs. Deneuve is a combination of Lana Turner and Marilyn Monroe, Isabelle Huppert is made like Agnes Moorehead, Fanny Ardent is like Rita Hayworth, Virginie Ledoyen is like Audrey Hepburn and so on... Itís a nice listen; itís informative, funny, enlightening and entertaining. Itíll make the movie more enjoyable.
