mixed feelings but still well worth a go
1 February 2000 | by (Strasbourg, France) – See all my reviews

Une femme d'extérieur casts Agnès Jaoui as its main and central character. She plays a nurse, Françoise, whose life is turned upside down once she discovers her husband is having an affair. The discovery prompts her to reassess not only her marriage but also and more importantly her whole way of being. The husband is chucked out and she realizes she's not really the worse for it. The film then follows her through the many changes she goes through as the people that thought they knew her (former husband, kids, colleagues) watch on in disbelief. All the characters are likeable and true to life. The acting is first rate and yet the film is not entirely satisfactory. Some bits are well paced and others are overly drawn out. The movie could have done with some further editing. All in all, the film is quite enjoyable and certainly avoids the mannerisms that so many French movies are prone to.
