A weekly update of video releases. Dates in paratheses indicate a previous review in the Monitor.


(PG, Columbia TriStar Home Video). During the Nazi occupation of Paris, a young pianist takes a job as accompanist to a French singer, only partially realizing that she must now subordinate her own interests to those of her employer and the employer's husband. The husband, a businessman, is increasingly uncomfortable about the political ramifications of his work. The movie is handsomely filmed and tastefully directed, which makes for a pleasant viewing experience but a rather pallid treatment of the serious themes raised by the screenplay. Romane Bohringer gives an impressively nuanced performance in the title role. Claude Miller directed. (Feb. 11, 1994)
