Huppert Class

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Legendary French actress Isabelle Huppert (Entre Nous, Story of Women)returns in what is perhaps her greatest role. She plays a fashion executive whobegins an affair with a much younger bisexual bartender (Vincent Martinez).Needless to say, their differing backgrounds and lifestyles present manyobstacles. The School of Flesh is based on a novel by Yukio Mishima anddirected by Benoit Jacquot. Watching Huppert's exquisite face alone is worth theprice of admission.
