Emmanuelle Béart can act!
5 October 2004 | by Red-125See all my reviews

Les Égarés, (2003) ["Strayed" in the U.S.] is directed by

André Téchiné. The film stars Emmanuelle Béart as Odile, a war widow who flees Paris to escape the Germans. Although not wealthy, the family is well-educated and respectable. They bring with them their middle-class skills and weaknesses. Most

important in the film, they transfer their civilized world outlook to a world that is no longer civilized. Odile and her family quickly encounter the harsh realities of refugee life during wartime. The movie is essentially a journal of the family's adaptation to their new and dangerous situation.

Although the film, as would be expected, has its moments of violence, the substance of the drama revolves around the interaction of four characters--Odile, her two children, and an almost feral teenage boy they meet along the way.

Emmanuelle Béart's fabled beauty has, in some ways, worked against her reputation as an actor. However, if you look beyond Béart's appearance, you'll see an experienced actor delivering a moving and nuanced performance.

I recommend this film highly; it's worth seeking out.
