The New Eve

Camille is a bundle of energy, sexual and otherwise, in Catherine Corsini's effective portrait of an independent woman with a troubled and unstable sense of herself. After a chance meeting with a married political activist Camille begins to pursue him relentlessly, attending party meetings (she helps illegal immigrants, she explains, by sleeping with them) and finally joining him in illicit weekend getaways. But she's clearly a bit over-the-top, initiating sex in semipublic settings, and she admits that her love is “like an illness.” Corsini's isolating close-ups and Karin Viard's performance capture Camille's volatility and alienation—at one point, feeling trapped, she breaks a plate over her head.
