The Reader

Postby hnderson » Sat May 06, 2006 3:23 pm

I've been searching for this film for a long time. As my memory isn't what it used to be, I don't remember when I saw it but believe it was in the mid to late '80s. I believe it was French. And the actress' name was Mia Mia.

It was a simple story of a young woman who became a reader to mostly lonely people.

My searches for this film have come up with nothing which makes me believe it was a forgettable film. So why can't I forget it? I thought the actress was amazing and had the impression that she was quite well known in France. Yet, searches of her name bring up nothing.

Does anyone have an idea of how I might find this film or information about Mia Mia and any other films that she's been in?

The film you're looking for is Michel Deville's La Lectrice (1988), starring Miou-Miou. I'm not sure where you are, but the film is available here (U.S.) on vhs. Hope that helps.

Thanks, I'm amazed the difference that a tiny bit of information can produce;-).
