A radiant, pure love story told with incredible elegance.
2 July 2004 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

It could have been the umpteenth boring French film about a couple in the thirty-something crisis. And it may be just that if you only care for guns and gooey monsters. But for viewers with a heart, "Clara and I" strikes a rare string.

The action is indeed minimal : they fall in love, and out of love. But it's been a while since a loving couple was such a perfect match, an obvious pair radiating charm and the magic of being in love. Throughout the film, the same elegance pervades : no painful explanations, no literary despairs, no hysterics. Life as pure as if it had been distilled.

Julien Boissellier, the main actor, doesn't look like much but he just might be the next big thing in French movies, with the discreet intensity of a Trintignant. Canadian viewers will remember Julie Gayet from "Chaos and Desire". The lightning and the camera work are superbly intelligent. The score features the new French scene with songs by Biolay and Katherine.

Go see this movie for the first half, which will make you want to fall in love. Go see this movie if you like Sautet and Truffaut and Ozu. Go see this movie because it was shot on digital and yet it's warm and sensitive. Go see this movie, if you have a heart.
