Water Drops on Burning Rocks
aka Gouttes d'eau sur pierres brúlantes
First screened in July 2003
Director: François Ozon. Cast: Bernard Giraudeau, Malik Zidi, Ludivine Sagnier, Anna Thomson. Screenplay: François Ozon (based on the play by Rainer Werner Fassbinder).

Twitter Capsule: Never got what it was up to. Cast too green for this odd stunt. As in 8 Women, Ozon forces 'em along.

VOR:   Of more than passing interest to Fassbinder fans, but one generally feels Ozon should slow down, ramp up, or both.
