A great French movie! Binoche and Téchiné at their best!
Have you been waiting to see Juliette Binoche again in her first role after her Academy Award winning performance in "The English Patient"? Are you interested in the new film by the director of "Les voleurs / Thieves"? Do you want to see a young actor he promises to be great French movie star? If so, you should definitely go and see "Alice et Martin" which I consider one of the best films I've seen in a long time. It's the story of Martin, a young man from a small town in the "province" and the way his disturbing past effects his first love to an older woman (Binoche). Although the screenplay sometimes doesn't deliver the most realistic dialogues and scenes, it's an highly emotional, artistic and intelligent movie, brilliantly acted and well directed. French cinema at its very best. Not to be missed by all fans of French films.
