A masterpiece of mediocrity
19 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

This will be a short review for a short film that unfortunately feels longer than it actually is.

After a fairly effective beginning, the story immediately begins to tread water. It's repetitive, undramatic and predictable. As for the actors: Jane Birkin regularly appears unsure of what emotion to express, her face saying more about her age than about her characters struggle. Lucien Guignard seems to channel John Travolta's Danny from Grease, which, while amusing, quickly gets stale (which says a lot, considering the the entire film is only thirty minutes long).

Ultimately the film feels like the hundredth iteration of the stereotypical drama about the lonely, sentimental older lady.
