  • French actress Anne Parillaud (Albertine) and American actor Jason Scott Lee (Avik) generate chemistry as the adult lovers. Parillaud, who starred in director Luc Besson's 1991 thriller "La Femme Nikita," demonstrates her versatile and spirited talent as the young woman in love who has come-of-age. Because she didn't speak English at this point, however, her dialogue is dubbed. Director-screenwriter Vincent Ward was born in Greytown, New Zealand and attended the Ilam School of Fine Art. Testing the directorial waters, Ward began his career with short films, many of which were critically lauded. His obvious talent made the transition to feature film production smooth. In 1984 he made "Vigil," his first feature and the first New Zealand film to be shown in competition at Cannes. It took Ward four years to complete "The Navigator" (1988), his previous film, a stunning fantasy about several men from medieval England who travel through the earth and time. When they arrive in 20th Century Australia, they are faced with the challenge of saving their village. It's a film known for its wonderful cinematography. Shot in Panavision.
