Mesmerizing
27 January 2012 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I don't know what happened to me during the watching of this movie, but I feel as if I had spent this time catched by it, and especially the marvellous acting of Sandrine Kiberlain. Though, I can understand that this kind of movie needs a real encounter between him and you, and thus it isn't sure that everyone could easily like it : there is not a lot of actions, and rare are the dialogus. But, something is, at every seconds, happening. An emotion is coming up, or a thinking, at every scenes. Sandrine Kberlain is totally mesmerizing with an acting that could be defined as showing by non-showing. All that is happening is inside her, but also in you as you watch the movie playing. In a word, this movie is delicate. And so, very beautiful. Maybe to be experienced alone, in a dark room.
