Sévigné : a story which shows how two women come together.
Every film has its own positive as well as negative aspects.One of the most positive things about Marta Balletbò-Coll's film Sévigné is that it is very much a pro women film at heart.Everything about this film is shrouded in a feminist allure.It is made by a women,two of its main characters are women.There is not much for men to do in this film as one of the male characters,a drama critic is badly lampooned for failing to see meaning in various enchanting plays.This is the reason why its biggest drawback consists of its being slightly critical of men in some ways.It can be surmised that Marta Balletbò-Coll decided to opt for this ruse to please her female admirers.In her film,we see a variety of human emotions flow freely as women and men express their love for all things including love for arts,theater and human beings.The performances of actors appear restrained as all this is done in a very subtle manner.Marta Balletbò-Coll has also remained faithful to artistic creation as her film discusses problems which artists face when plays are performed.
