Storyline

Cecile is a young and beautiful Frenchwoman married to a much older Englishman. She loves her husband and seems to be content with her life, until she meets a younger man and feels forgotten passions stirring within her. She now finds herself confronted with a choice: to stay with the steady and peaceful love of her husband, or to run off for excitement and adventure with a new love?

A field day, indeed...
24 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

That this film garners one terrible review after another is beyond me. Viewers must have turned up to see BB's nipples and left sorely disappointed.

In truth, A Coeur Joie (A Field Day aka Two Weeks in September) is a searing portrait of a young woman trying desperately to cling to reality whilst being swept away in the frivolity of a passionate affair abroad.

The angst drummed up by Bardot's Cecile is both stirring and utterly jarring. Has the story been told before? Sure. Has the story been told like this? Not through the eyes of such vulnerable avatars. The dialog beckons you to read between the lines. Every subtlety is captured almost impeccably from start to finish.

When the spell is broken in the last frame you are very nearly left as breathless as Cecile.

This celluloid gem glitters as it's all-but-forgotten like the best diamonds in the rough.
