Storyline

Gabrielle (Marion Cotillard) comes from a small village in the South of France, at a time when her dream of true love is considered scandalous, and even a sign of insanity. Her parents marry her to José (Alex Brendemühl), an honest and loving Spanish farm worker who they think will make a respectable woman of her. Despite José's devotion to her, Gabrielle vows that she will never love José and lives like a prisoner bound by the constraints of conventional post-World War II society until the day she is sent away to a cure in the Alps to heal her kidney stones. There she meets André Sauvage (Louis Garrel), a dashing injured veteran of the Indochinese War, who rekindles the passion buried inside her. She promises they will run away together, and André seems to share her desire. Will anyone dare rob her of her right to follow her dreams? Written by Polly_Kat

Disappointed?
13 December 2016 | by (Ankara, Turkey) – See all my reviews

Although I knew what I would encounter, I watched the movie. I believe that if I take part in general impressions, I need to make a few words.

First, there is a theme problem in the film. So when the film goes to the next scene, it leaves behind the previous problems and problems are accumulating. Naturally the stream is deteriorating. Secondly, the movie contains more than one movie. This is not something that can not be done, but this movie can not do it. This is a mistake made to create a plot twist. Finally, the film is far from cinematography. In the first twenty minutes there are worthwhile images, but then the film leaves it. Despite everything, Marion Cotillard is great again.

It is not a film that does not appreciate what you get because you have nothing to gain. This is the result of Cannes' French film obsession.
