Paper covers Rosetta (1999)
26 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Beautiful, well paced and plotted, this film depicts a woman's attempt to live in a world indifferent to the point of malice. Kaspar is convincing as Sam, a fragile and grieving attempted-suicide whose recovery and dream of reunion with her daughter are followed in the film. While it is rather disheartening to watch her plod through the motions of living until her blood actually begins to flow again, the viewer can look forward to the devastation that is to come. The film is a little too predictable, too constructed, but the masterful execution makes it worth watching. Imperceptibly through the suffering we find that perspective has shifted, and that the heroine deserved more than our pity. In a world were injustice is law, sanity is insanity, and love is hate, is life death? The end of the film poses this question, and doesn't seem to leave much choice of an answer. Still, this film should be enjoyable for those looking for understanding company in their own alienation.
