Director Emmanuelle Cuau films difficult lives of two honest as well as simple people.
20 October 2014 | by (FIPRESCI/Cinema of the world) – See all my reviews

French film "Très Bien, Merci" discusses issues related to a family whose protagonists happen to lead a life without adventures. It is a frank yet brutal portrayal of hardships faced by an ordinary couple who decide not to buckle under pressure. Actors Gilbert Melki and Sandrine Kiberlain are doing good in their respective jobs. However, a minor incident on one Parisian metro changes their life forever. This is the beginning of a tough battle for individual rights involving an ordinary citizen and an arrogant French police. Emmanuelle Cuau questions the role of individual in a society which has decided to authorize extreme powers to some bodies which are governed by the state. Her film is instrumental in suggesting that there are times when the temptation to transform oneself from good to bad is very high. It is at that moment that many mistakes are made and failures observed. French director Emmanuelle Cuau specializes in making films about ordinary families and their extraordinary inner turmoil. In 1995, she made her feature film début with "Circuit Carole", a brilliant family story involving an oddball pair of a mother and her daughter. She made her loyal fans wait for eleven more years as "Tres Bien,Merci" got made in 2006.
