A perfect film by French director Claude Pinoteau who shaped Isabelle Adjani's cinematographic career.
19 April 2013 | by (Cinema of the world / World Cinema.) – See all my reviews

Film critic Mr.Lalit Rao has keenly observed that apart from films set in innumerable Parisian Cafés,films about families and family life are also an essential facet of French cinema.This is done in a very frank manner as French directors sense that there is no harm in talking about troubles which afflict French society at large.They are of the opinion that it is solely through discussions about issues that solutions are found.La Gifle is one such film which deals with a middle class French family which sees cracks develop between a husband,his wife and his young daughter.However,it must be stated that "La Gifle" is not only about family problems but also how troubles within a family are solved.In 1974,French director Claude Pinoteau worked with one of France's most famous screenwriters Jean Loup Dabadie to create a real slice of life.The same team worked again six years later to direct and write,"La Boum"(The Party,1980)-One of French cinema's most recognizable films about issues which affect French youngsters.La Gifle is considered an important film of her illustrious cinema career by noted actress Isabelle Adjani who has publicly acknowledged Claude Pinoteau's contribution to her acting career when he chose to cast her in his films.
