Storyline

Irene Girard is an ambassador's wife and used to always live in luxury. After the dramatic death of her son, she feels guilty of having neglected him and feels compelled to help people in need who cross her path. One day she offers shelter to a man who is evading justice, and she ends being arrested herself. Her husband, for the sake of social propriety, arranges for a doctor to declare her insane. Irene escapes one prison to enter another, and to reflect on what sort of society she lives in. Written by Artemis-9

My rating: 9
30 July 2013 | by (Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

Film that addresses not so familiar to us theme from the film world, in a way that probably will not be seen again, ever. The level of criticism towards humanity, even more to its "elite" backgrounds is really high. Even the most ordinary people can be seen through this critical look.

The theme, I think, is the theme of humanism. How different people deal with it. Whether human are the rich who think only of themselves or the poor whose environment stimulates them to live away from what the education understand as normal or like the people confronted with nothingness of Albert Camus? Interestingly, the normal, healthy society answers this question. It diagnoses the anomaly and puts it in quarantine. Footing her mental illness, surpassing even the religious world view.

Such is probably the Europe in 1951 - a little child that tried twice to get the attention of his mother in a rather extreme way.

Film deserves to be seen.
