Storyline

Marcelline is an actress. Forty, single and childless, she begins rehearsals for Turgenev's A MONTH IN THE COUNTRY. Denis, the director, admires her greatly and promises he'll make her happy on stage - she will shine. But things don't go to plan. Denis introduces Marcelline to his assistant, Nathalie. The two women were at drama school together twenty years earlier. Nathalie tells her she had to give up acting: she has a husband and children. Marcelline and Nathalie look at each other as if in a mirror, each seeing in the other the life she doesn't have, the dreams she cannot bear to abandon. Their meeting is the first in a series of tremors that will turn Marcelline's life upside down. Written by Wild Bunch Distribution

More France than Woody Allen
30 June 2008 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

It has been called a comedy in his spirit. It isn't. Surely the people here are neurotic, but much more than they are in an Allen movie. And they lack his humour.

Marcelline is the actress who goes Turgenyev. In her private life, she desperately wants a child. She's 40 now. This neurosis together with the part she's acting, almost destroys her. She doesn't know who she is anymore.

But instead of being a movie about common life, this is more a movie about theatre. And you don't feel much, watching it. Woody Allen is far away.
