Good, but overrated by previous critics, I thought.
20 February 2003 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

In general, I would agree with Alice Liddell's well thought out and written critique. In general. Some minor points.

First and foremost, this movie shares a little bit with your generic cop shows, where you know that no matter how complex the murder, how many red herrings are caught, you are confident that by the end of 60 minutes (less commercials), the murderer will be caught, will have confessed, and all loose ends tied up. This show has a little bit of that. The interactions with the patients are too smoooth, too glib, too easy. For example, one doesn't turn an angry teenage girl into a model compassionate and understanding child in one 10-minute session, no matter how good one is.

Secondly, it is little colourless (I mean literally!), I thought. Is provincial France really that dreary? I kinda doubt it.

But yes, a good film overall. Not great, but good.
