"I think it is important not to become too blase," said Romane Bohringer, puffing away on a Marlboro and tugging nervously at the sleeve of her sweater. No problem there. All in black and all of 20, the slight French actress seemed much too intense and passionate during a recent interview. But Bohringer has certainly been put to the test in the last year by the success of two films in Europe that have made her a sensation in her native country.

The winter of 1942 in German-occupied Paris is especially brutal, and an awkward young woman of 20, clumsy in her heavy, utilitarian shoes, can be forgiven for moving uncertainly up an ornate hall stairway. But then a door opens and, like an apparition, a brilliant singer appears in recital, elegant and sophisticated in a shimmering, floor-length white gown. The younger woman is transfixed, utterly. In fact, it is not too much to say that in that moment she falls in love.

Cesar Awards: "Les Nuits Fauves (Savage Nights)" walked off with four of the French Cesar awards Monday night just three days after director Cyril Collard, who also wrote and starred in the film about a young bisexual's struggle with AIDS, died from the disease at age 35. The French equivalent of the Oscars were bestowed for best film, best first film, best editing and most promising actress (Romane Bohringer).

This 1993 French film is an assured, psychologically acute piece of filmmaking that uses classical music as an effective counter-melody. It emphasizes delicately the several kinds of fatalistic love stories director Claude Miller and co-writer Luc Beraud have fashioned from Nina Berberova's novel. Romane Bohringer (pictured, with Julien Rassam) is impressive and devastating as a woman in the quiet grip of passion.

With her second feature, "Portraits Chinois," Martine Dugowson takes a wry look at a group of Parisian thirtysomethings steeped in self-absorption, sporting slightly shaggy looks and searching for love wherever they can find it and with little regard to the consequences.

Kristian Levring's great-looking "The King Is Alive" demands more than it rewards. It strands 11 people in a long-abandoned mining community somewhere in a vast African desert, where one of the group, a onetime Shakespearean actor, writes down "King Lear" from memory. He persuades the others to participate in staging the tragedy as a way of staving off despair and madness while awaiting a rescue that may never come.

"Total Eclipse" is the art-house equivalent of "Casey at the Bat." Considerable ability has gone into a potential home run scenario, but the result is a big whiff all the way around. Written by Christopher Hampton, responsible for "Dangerous Liaisons" and the upcoming "Carrington," directed by Agnieszka Holland, best known for "Europa, Europa" and "The Secret Garden," and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, David Thewlis and Romane Bohringer, "Total Eclipse" can't be accused of stinting on talent.

"Savage Nights," the born-to-be-controversial French film, teaches several lessons, most of them unintentional. * It shows how a sensation in one culture can turn wearing in another, that a story nominally about AIDS may be about something else entirely and, contrary to what so many movies have indicated, that having a fatal illness does not necessarily ennoble the person involved.

"The Chambermaid" is a deliciously amusing celebration of the power of romantic imagination from Bigas Luna, a Spanish master of sly wit and psychological insight. This light, consistently original and delightful period fable is the kind of film in which sophisticated European filmmakers excel, but they don't come along as frequently as they once did.
