Life upside down
2 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

I too would like more people to see this wonderful film. François Dupeyron is a new director for me (I haven't yet been able to see La Chambre des officiers, which everyone liked so much) and I found Inguélézi to be sad and gripping for most of its running time. What Geneviève is going through is well described: loss, panic, a desperate wish to restore some of the certainties of life, it's all here.

Eric Caravaca, whose fifth film with Dupeyron this is, is very good as Kader, a part he probably learned phonetically. This man has to deal with grief just as much as the woman does; there's a wonderful scene where he makes a ceremonial marking on both their foreheads with earth, a way to pass through the sorrow. The London scenes are not as good, there is a feeling of impatience with the director to hurry up and finish the film.
