  • In Andr Tchin's RENDEZ-VOUS, Nina (Juliette Binoche) lives in Paris, having recently liberated herself from her hometown of Toulouse. In the three short months since her arrival, she can count the number of nights spent alone on one hand. While performing a small role in a play, Nina meets Paolo, a real estate agent. In a fit of love, Paolo takes Nina under his wing only to find that she has fallen for his cruel and insidious flatmate, Quentin. Quentin is an actor who works in an illicit sex show. The first time he meets Nina, he attempts to rape her. As Paola pursues Nina to no avail, Quentin and Nina develop a bizarre, cruel, and obsessive relationship. When Quentin kills himself, Nina and Paolo are brought together. A mysterious theater director, Scrutzler (Jean-Louis Trintignant), emerges and tells Nina that he had directed Quentin and his last lover in ROMEO AND JULIET and that the two had enacted a real-life suicide pact, one that Quentin unwittingly survived. Nina and Paolo move in together, as Nina is haunted by visions of Quentin. When she is cast as Juliet in Scrutzler's new production, the lives of all the characters collide. Paolo finally leaves Nina as she struggles to escape the influence and cruelty of Quentin and prepares to be her own Juliet.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...A stylishly engrossing tale of obsessive sexuality and initiation, forcefully put across by excellent young actors..."

    "...Swift and somber....[Techine] has now in full measure that characteristically French understanding that in dealing with love and passion, a brisk, laconic style creates the greatest emotional impact..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "...Andre Techine's 'best director' Cannes winner is tight, visually sleek, and an alternate showcase for Juliet Binoche..."
    USA Today

    "Juliette Binoche still shines...as promiscuous and lovelorn ingenue Nina."
