Excellent film about a brother, sister and their beloved.
13 June 2007 | by (FIPRESCI/Cinema of the world) – See all my reviews

If one looks closely at the history of French cinema, it will be revealed that the famous actor Jean Rochefort has not got his proper dues. It is true that due to the lack of star appeal, he has never been hailed as a movie star. Whatever one feels, Jean Rochefort shines a lot in supporting roles or character roles. Look for films like "Le Mari de la coiffeuse" and "L'homme du train" made by Patrice Leconte. "Chère Inconnue" directed by Moshe Mizrahi is one such film which gives ample opportunity to Jean Rochefort to showcase the richness of his acting talents. In this film he is supported by two of the greatest ladies of the French cinema : Delphine Seyrig and Simone Signoret. As "Chère Inconnue" is a family film of excellent emotions, it must only be watched with family members. Just in case if you watch it alone, you would feel a longing for your family. Everyone is going to appreciate the brother, the sister and their beloved. Do let me know when the DVD of this film is made available with English subtitles.
