Solid, no-frills story telling
26 March 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

There is really nothing special about the story - a successful, young lawyer with a good career, two great children and a 'model' husband finds her life in peril upon the revelation of an incurable disease. We have seen stories like this before. However, 'All Our Desires' (I still think the title is not very relevant) is a film that works. It works because of the way the director tells the story, and the way the actors play out their roles and emotion.

Nothing is over-the-top. The bonding between the two lead actors, with the age gap, is natural and admirable. One can still argue about the cliché of Claire withholding her illness from her husband but it was not too important. In the end I find the story to be moving, well told and engaging.

This is my first exposure to films by Philippe Lioret. And it definitely will not be my last.
