"Densely mysterious, perceptibly present..."
16 May 2014 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

French screenwriter, costume designer and director Katell Quillévéré second feature film which she co-wrote with screenwriter Mariette Désert, is inspired by her readings of autobiographies of women who shared the lives of criminals. It premiered in the 52nd International Critics' Week Special Screenings section at the 66th Cannes International Film Festival in 2013, was shot on locations in France and is a French production which was produced by producer Bruno Levy. It tells the story about a person named Suzanne Merevsky who lives in a commune in France with her father named Nicolas and her sister named Maria.

Distinctly and reverently directed by French filmmaker Katell Quillévéré, this finely paced fictional tale which is narrated from multiple viewpoints though mostly from the protagonist's point of view, draws a virtuously humane portrayal of a human being's discovery of herself and life and her integral relationship with her family. While notable for its distinctly atmospheric and naturalistic milieu depictions, reverent cinematography by cinematographer Tom Harari, production design by production designer Anna Falguères, costume design by costume designer Moïra Douguet and use of sound, colors and light, this character-driven and narrative-driven story where a woman meets a man named Julien whose life she finds more appealing than her own, depicts a reflectively non-judgmental study of character and contains a great and timely score by composer Verity Susman.

This charmingly humorous, perspicaciously romantic and tangible character piece which is set in south-eastern France in the late 20th century and early 21th century and where the daughter of a truck-driver and sister of a textile worker finds what she has been looking for, is impelled and reinforced by its cogent narrative structure, substantial character development, rhythmic continuity, distinguishable use of music and authenticity, majestically internalized acting performance by French actress Sara Forestier and the commendable acting performances by French actress Adèle Haenel and Belgian actor Francois Damiens. A densely mysterious, perceptibly present and cinematically rejuvenating narrative feature.
