Louise Wimmer-An excellent Cyril Mennegun film which questions what happens to a society's "Laissés-pour-compte".
22 September 2013 | by FilmCriticLalitRaoSee all my reviews

A regular feature of contemporary French cinema is its promotion and support of realistic films. These films are the ones which stay as close as possible to issues related to people and their broader impact on the country as a whole. It is in this sense that they make it a point to address what could be called as French society's "Laissés-Pour-Compte". 'Louise Wimmer' is one such unconventional story which talks about the tough life of an SDF woman (a homeless person) who uses all her energy to maintain her dignity to preserve sanity in a world where issues tend to fluctuate from local to international in order to finally end up as local questions. It is a known fact that these questions need local solutions as everybody involved is aware of the problems and solutions which gravitate along these problems. French actress Corinne Masiero is excellent in her role as a homeless woman who would never be ready to give up her struggle. It must be pointed out that her struggle is not an ordinary fight as she has to make tough choices of living in her own car, stealthily eat leftover food at restaurants and pilfer petrol from other automobiles. She gives much needed credibility to the positive depiction of SDFs in France. Her performance is highly authentic as she is the only female lead of the new French cinema about a woman SDF.
