Haunted by the Past, seduced in the Present
18 June 2006 | by (Frankfurt, Germany) – See all my reviews

It's hard not to be reminded of 'Damage' when watching 'Sotto falso Nome'. The stories are very similar, except for changing the main character in Louis Malles film, a politician, to a writer of novels. Played by Auteuil, he publishes his novels pseudonymous, thereby not only covering his private life, but also something else - the archetypal element, a secret from the past. As you would except, this secret returns and is about to make trouble. Trouble also comes from the beautiful girl (gorgeous Anna Mourgaglis - I wonder what she looks like portraying Simone de Beauvoir in "Les Amants du Flore") Auteuils character Daniel Boltanskis stumbles about coincidentally (or maybe not so coincidentally after all?). That's the outline of a film altogether slow paced, spiced with a bit of erotic, but at the time very intense in the portrayal of it's characters. Probably not a film to make a lasting impact, it is nonetheless entertaining, and quite sophisticated at that.
