# 04 : Slices of life a bit overrated (vhs)
25 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

like all dramatic french directors, Pialat is considered as a genius: however this movie isn't so great: it's a story of a parents getting separated: sure the scenes are really authentic and close to a onstage play but a movie is also a rhythm and a story and here it's pretty flat and really disjointed! the scenes are stuck together and at the end emotion doesn't get crescendo: the kid is rather transparent, Gégé is not particularly exuberant this time, the old football player should have stayed on the field so yes Géraldine is the only highlight of this movie: it was great to see her as a mother and she was really moving as a hurt girlfriend and for sure, her voice, her charm and her kindness do the rest...
