An erratic psychological Vaudeville
17 April 2019 | by FrenchEddieFelsonSee all my reviews

I must admit that I approached this film with a quite special a priori. On one hand, I love the actors Benoît Poelvoorde and Chiara Mastroianni. On the other hand, the last three movies of Benoît Jacquot (i.e. Dernier amour, Éva, À jamais) are, in my humble opinion, relatively mediocre.

Marc is a caricature of what is called in French a 'coeur d'artichaut': he falls easily in love. Too easily! Thus, Marc encounters Sylvie but, as soon as they know each other, they lose sight of each other, following an unforeseen event. A few days later, Marc meets Sophie by chance and falls in love ... again. It turns out that Sophie is unfortunately the sister of Sylvie. The film traces then a triangular relationship with Marc and the two sisters, Sylvie and Sophie. As you may guess, the wheels will soon be off the cart!

As usual with Benoît Jacquot, the script is far-fetched and Benoît Jacquot seems to go astray or wander. But the quatuor Benoît Poelvoorde, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Chiara Mastroianni, Catherine Deneuve is excellent. Even if his character is barely credible, Benoît Poelvoorde is really great. And Chiara Mastroianni is exceptionally magnificent.

As a synthesis: 5/6 of 10. Although the script is lopsided, the film contains some sublime scenes.

PS: Three coeurs is the tenth film gathering Chiara Mastroianni and Catherine Deneuve, after these ones: Les lignes de Wellington (2012), Les bien-aimés (2011), Bancs publics (Versailles rive droite) (2009), Un conte de Noël (2008), Persepolis (2007), Le temps retrouvé, d'après l'oeuvre de Marcel Proust (1999), Les voleurs (1996), Ma saison préférée (1993) and À nous deux (1979). Champagne !
