Under the Sand

I haven't seen any mention here of this recent dvd. Beautiful and haunting film from France with a knockout performance from the great Charlotte Rampling. Combination ghost story,psychological drama. DVD has an insightful commentary from director Ozon and an interview with Rampling. Highly recommended. (Even though there is an incredible gaff during chapter 8 (at 43:36) where the boom shows in a reflection - other than that it is first class all the way)

Just reviewed this title for DVD Talk. Expect it to appear on the Reviews page soon.

I enjoyed this film quite a bit. Did you catch the "Vanishing" homage (mirror-image gas station visit) at the beginning? I also loved the movie's final shot.

Charlotte Rampling was outstanding as Marie.
