A Non-Original, Tragic and Moralist Story
19 October 2004 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In Marseilles, Marie-Jo (Ariane Ascaride) is an unfaithful middle-age middle-class woman, who drives an ambulance and is married with the builder Daniel Jean-Pierre Darroussin). They have a teenager daughter Julie (Julie-Marie Parmentier), who is engaged of Sylvain (Yann Tregouët). Marie-Jo falls in love with the pilot Daniel (Gérard Meylan) and divides her love by her lover and her husband. This weird relationship ends in a tragic and moralist way. I have just watched the good movie 'La Ville Est Tranquille' and I have decided to see 'Marie-Jo et Ses 2 Amours' to know a little bit more about Robert Guédiguian. Inclusive both movies has the same cast. I found 'Marie-Jo et Ses 2 Amours' a non-original, tragic and moralist movie, but again with a great performance of the cast. The storyline is identical to Ingmar Bergman's 'Beröringen (1971)', with the difference that 'Beröringen' has an open end and is a great movie. 'Marie-Jo et Ses 2 Amours' is really a very disappointing film. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): 'Marie-Jo e Seus Dois Amores' {'Marie-Jo and Her Two Loves')
