Solid
22 September 2013 | by Chris LSee all my reviews

Philippe Lioret is kind of the French Ken Loach, a director who best expresses his potential when he is depicting the hard reality. He proves it once again in this Toutes Nos Envies, a committed, social movie who deals with the last legal battle of a reserved Marie Gillain, resigned to dying, helped by the always excellent Vincent Lindon.

The script, though relatively predictable, is well executed and most importantly it never falls into melodramaticism. Despite everything, and even if this drama turns out to be touching, it doesn't fully convinces either, due to a plot that sometimes drags on a bit too much and a direction too lazy. Too bad because if it wasn't for that, the movie would be close to a real success.
