..other side of the pond they just do these kinds of films so much better
26 September 2014 | by bjariasSee all my reviews

If you're going to have a May/December affair with a woman in her mid 60's..Fanny is definitely the one you want to have it with. And even should you be same age or older, don't think you'd believe her to be an off choice. As for her performance in this film, it's once again pure Fanny Ardant.. she just makes it all look so relaxed and easy. She is (and has been for most her entire career) in a league all her own. It's a great cast overall, there are no weak performances. The script is straightforward, but again is so well done you do not realize how good it is until it's all over. And should you be fortunate enough in life to have experienced somewhat a similar circumstance.. all the more poignant.
