Ambitious…Average…French.
20 May 2014 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Quintessentially French in almost every way, from the extended stare shots to an abundance of cigarette smoke and, of course, numerous mental breakdowns from a character vainly trying to find her place in the universe, Emmanuelle Bercot's (Backstage) road trip dramedy On My Way has all the stylings of a heartfelt foreign gem, but never fleshes out the very promising relationships forged by its cast, opting instead for mediocrity through melodrama.

The inarguable highlight is the performance of Catherine Deneuve, one-time sex kitten turned French film royalty, who – still stunning in her late sixties – keeps the film rolling with her dedicated, complex portrayal of Bettie, an aimless restaurant owner who tries to stitch up her frayed relationship with daughter Muriel (singer-songwriter Camille) by taking her grandson, the flamboyant Charly (Nemo Schiffman) on a cross-country road trip.

Like most car-buddy films, the reward lies in the journey, not the destination. On My Way runs into both peaks and troughs in this area, with some moments deftly illustrating the different worlds Bettie and her grandson come from (especially touching is the pair sharing terrible Chinese food in a two-star motel while discussing love and loss), while others leave you demanding Charly cop a smack around the head from his decidedly pushover grandma.

When Bettie finally delivers Charly to the mansion of his estranged grandfather – now the mayor of a remote country village – the film's loose ends struggle to catch up to an ambitious ending that unfortunately closes on a whimper, not a bang. On My Way is a pleasant ride, sure, just not a memorable one.

*There's nothing I love more than a bit of feedback, good or bad. So drop me a line on jnatsis@iprimus.com.au and let me know what you thought of my review. If you're looking for a writer for your movie website or other publication, I'd also love to hear from you.*
