Storyline

In the 1960s in Normandy, Mina, Georges' beautiful and sensible wife, seeks to escape from her routine life by going to the cinema with Tommy, their fifteen-year-old boy. After a screening of West Side Story, Matthias, a man they are sitting next to, invites them for a drink at a dance hall. At the same time, Georges finds a job at a building site and is compelled to stay away from home the whole week long. The growing passion between Mina and Matthias is as painful for Tommy as for Georges. He finally accepts Mina's departure, as he hopes that this love affair will not last long ... Written by L.H.

A Bridge Too Weak
22 December 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Despite the wonderfully wrenching performance of the boy (Stanislas Crevillen) this Bridge lacks foundation to support the relationship that turns on a tear. Motive matters. And a thoughtless and irresponsible and unsympathetic role Bouquet is saddled with, besides a 16th arrondissement visage in a maid's role, does not allow the viewer to ultimately care, though the sympathies do lie with the boy and the dad. This tranche de la vie is a bit stale, n'est-ce pas?
