There is a lot of tension and resentment in Romain's and Jeanne's marriage, but their divorce is amicable. They seem to agree on how to raise their daughter, Madeleine - she will live with her mother and spend every other week-end with her father. But Romain is very controlling and manipulative and is poisoning the arrangement. At first, Jeanne seems to cope with being a single parent, but when she has to put up with Romain's tactics she starts to fall apart. Written by Dan Timis <>

No more a bridegroom!
26 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

In Bernard Stora's first movie,"Le jeune marié " (1983)(the bridegroom) ,it was love at first sight with ...another woman the night following the wedding.It spoke volumes about what this director thought of marriage ....and was still thinking in 1994.

I have not got many things to add to what the precedent user wrote."Consentement Mutuel" is a disturbing unconventional movie,marred by an ending which does not make sense at all:we're waiting for madness ,an open ending,and all we get is a politically correct conclusion.Besides ,how dumb Berry 's new partner must be! Hasn't she had enough?

Richard Berry is excellent .His character was probably "carefully" taught "properly" brought up (too bad we do not see his parents)and he wants his daughter to be the best and to be as regular as clockwork. But he's got to get his custody for he's divorced his wife.So he begins his ominous plan:everywhere, he demeans his wife.The scene at school is revealing: at first the schoolteacher was skeptical but little by little,in a suave voice, with wicked insinuations,he soon changed her mind for his.Berry's interpretation of his daughter's drawings is also worth the price of admission.

This character is probably mentally ill.That's why the ending dissatisfies.On the other hand,even when she loses her mind ,we do not believe that such a "straight" person as this modern attractive mother can do wrong.Anne Brochet' s best scene is probably the dinner which she attends ,"dressed as a whore" as her friend tells her.
