Violeta on the basis of this film, was angry, callous, sly and brilliant and probably many other things too. Francisca Gavilan, whose name is new to me, does a great job with the central character, and Thomas Durand plays her Swiss lover very well. The Louvre concert must be seen to be believed--what condescension on the part of the MC!
