The School of Flesh - C+

I simply don't get Benoit Jacquot's films -- of the three I've seen (The Disenchanted, Seventh Heaven, and this), all are intriguing but ultimately there's an emotional coldness and distance that keeps me from embracing them to the extent that Charles Francois apparently does. And of the three, this tale of obsessive love is easily the least -- I simply can't fathom why Isabelle Huppert's fashion executive is so interested in Vincent Martinez's plastic and generic himbo.
