This movie is too drawn out. Also for a French movie it is quite disappointing since there is no nudity, etc. The main actress who played Raja is also not even average looking (I really don't want to use the U word but it would not have been inaccurate). For Frederick to fall for her, he must have been really hard up especially considering there are many other local girls a rich man like him can certainly have.
The movie tries to portray Frederick as being lonely but still have plenty of libido. If that's the case he should visit the local nightclubs, etc. I am sure he can certainly find many more attractive young locals there.
If you want to watch a "Old man, Young woman" film, there are many better ones. Try American Beauty, Carried Away, Twilight of Love, etc.
