After the mysterious death of the father, a family - the mother, her son, and her two daughters - try to keep their life together on the island where they have always lived. Lost in the mourning process, without being able to share it, each member of the family unit, which teeters on the verge of breakdown, tries to face the situation. But behind the force of strong links and of the moments of happiness which, for a time, continue to unite them, isolation, the age of the children, and the health of the Mother, accelerate an inevitable separation.

swiss family robinson falls apart and bores the hell out of the viewer
I saw this movie yesterday at the International Film Festival Rotterdam.
Entre Nous is about a family that lives on an idyllic island near the coast of France. After the Father dies, the kids want to go back to shore, however mother refuses to leave the island that she and her late husband loved so much.
Entre Nous was shot on DV and has a grainy, pale look to it. The idyllic island feels more like a cold day out on Texel ( a small flat, windy and mostly boring island in the Netherlands) :) ). It felt like watching one of those "wow if you are coming over for dinner on saturday we can show you are great vacation movie of our two weeks in France" kind of movies. The ones you have to watch because people consider it impolite if you dont. Entre Nous fails to be interesting. With an exception of maybe 5 minutes where the mother is a bit overprotective of her family, the rest is just too boring. Almost fell asleep 4 times.
