El Hedi ben Salem,
L'Astragale is a 2015 French drama film directed by Brigitte Sy. It is the second film adaptation of the 1965 semi-autobiographical novel L'Astragale by Albertine Sarrazin, after Guy Casaril's L'Astragale.
After losing her virginity, Isabelle takes up a secret life as a call girl, meeting her clients for hotel-room trysts. Throughout, she remains curiously aloof, showing little interest in the encounters themselves or the money she makes.
Interesting argument about the life surrounding the train station in Paris. Much of the lifes there are from immigrants so the movie seems a bit of a documentary about the experiences felt by the almost real persons - are they actors?.
There's a twist about a supernatural power witch we amazingly confuse with the love felt about one person.
The picture is sometimes darker than one might look for as the action walks by the subway and the train station.
Sometimes there are people looking to the camera giving the experience a bit of an negative impact.
Overall it is a worthy movie but the 110 minutes makes it a bit lengthy as the action passes almost always in the train station, with the same people.
