A good first movie
7 February 2006 | by debordjimSee all my reviews

Although I did not consider "les corps impatients" as a masterpiece, I think the director did an interesting job in filming bodies (ailing bodies, healthy bodies, tattooed bodies, desired bodies, rejected bodies...). Charlotte's pain - physical of course, but also and mainly her psychological discomfort when she understands that she might die and that the world will not stop revolving for all that, that her loved one will love somebody else and therefore will forget a little bit about her - is palpable and well expressed. Laura Smet (who by the way is no famous pop star in France... where did you get that???), here in her first movie, proves to be a promising actress (like her mum?).
