Storyline

This movie tells the story of Bruno (Daniel Auteuil), a Communist newspaper journalist suffering a mid-life crisis. Torn between his wife Gaëlle (Emmanuel Devos) and his young girlfriend Nathalie (Ludivine Sagnier), his political beliefs battered by the wind of history, Bruno seems to have lost his bearings. After responding to a call for help from his uncle (Jean Yanne), who is fighting a losing battle for re-election as the Communist Mayor of a small town near Grenoble, Bruno gets lost in a dark forest. There he meets Béatrice (Dame Kristin Scott Thomas), who does nothing to stop him from getting even more lost.

Frustration
12 October 2003 | by Rooster-12See all my reviews

The obsession of 'signifie' and 'signifiant' is not enough to make a good film. Pascal Bonitzer should have remained in our memory as a brilliant film theorist back in the '60´s. It was not necessary to take the camera. The result is quite frustrating. It´s a pity for his excellent leading actors.
