You Can't Go Home Again

My sole reason for seeing this - about which I knew nothing - was the name of Natascha Reignier on the marquee. This German-born, Belgian-raised actress caught my eye first in Le Pont des Arts and I figured I could stand a little more of her. It's one of those stories when you find yourself saying to and/or about the main character 'why did you do it' usually when the ingénue in the old, dark house, throws on a negligee, grabs a candle and heads for the cellar/locked room at three in the morning against all the laws of logic, common sense and self-preservation. Here we wonder why Olivier (Mathieu Demy), having shaken off the bonds, not to say tentacles of the close-knit life on Corsica, elects to return on vacation with pregnant French girlfriend (Natasca Reignier) in tow and, having done so, is apparently content to leave her to her own devices whilst he joins in boar hunts in which he is accepted only via the good word put in by Vincent, (Thierry de Peretti). So from the first there are subtle layers of unease lacing the plot like sunbeams penetrating a dense forest. With at least two layers of tension - Olivier/Marianne, Olivier/hunters - working against him the last thing Olivier needs is to stop at a filling station and witness one of the boar hunters kill the cashier. Any moral qualms this would normally trigger are intensified because we are, remember, in Corsica where, as Damon Runyon might have said, the best you can get by interfering in things that don't concern you is the worst of it. In short, a broody piece with spectacular scenery and a highly watchable leading lady.
