"À moi seule", although it was selected in Berlin Golden Bear Competition, is a film which has a mediocre script, weakly created characters and kind of confusing edit.
5 August 2012 | by (Istanbul, Turkey) – See all my reviews

"À moi seule", it's a movie about a girl, Gaelle, captured by a blue-collar worker, Vincent. After passing long years in a cave, designed and equipped in her own way, and after trying many times to escape, one day Vincent let her go, without saying anything. As we understand later, Vincent was expecting a "Stockholm Syndrome" from Gaelle and he thinks when she look at the last time to the home and Vincent, she would be return with her own ascent to the slavery. Well, I should say, it does not look like a real slavery but more likely being in a prison. However, the film focuses on the attempt of adaptation into life, with flashbacks to the old imprisoned days . How could she be able to once again get used to her real life? Everyone feels guilty and a bit anxious about this thing happen. And Gaelle realize that will be not easy, but she have to be strong and the only chance she has, it's herself.

While I try to summarize the story, maybe you could understand that the scenario is not quite original. I've seen similar and better films especially in French cinema, like Les Amants Crminelles of François Ozon. So what can be more valuable than the script, is either characters or the director's ability to turn it into a good movie. For the characters, although we have few of them, we can feel only Gaelle, who has a real character. Vincent or Gaelle's mother are just like someone who serve to story but without any identity. For director's ability, I should say the editing of the movie is kind of failure. He mixed up the story so we go forward and backward into the time, but still the movie has some problems of the scenes where action goes so quickly and you do not know how to relate them with the previous or next one. For instance, the scene with Gaelle when she first comes to Vincent's cave, one can think that she is another girl, which makes Vincent even more "psycho".

So, for my understanding, "À moi seule", although it was selected in Berlin Golden Bear Competition, is a film which has a mediocre script, weakly created characters and kind of confusing edit.
