Never to be abandoned again
20 May 2018
This movie tells a story of a man struggling with separation as it triggers an emotional response from the past. The sacrifices of heart that this man makes to eliminate his fear of abandonement finally leads to a "phantom heart".

If splendid was a movie, this would be it
20 May 2018
This is an encounter between soulmates, in Plato's terms. The divine is clearly present, using dreams to lead them through the natural world.

The end of the movie brings a sentiment of a purpose fulfilled.

Exceptional.

The Captain (2017)
If you want to test man's character, give him power
5 April 2018
An interesting movie for 2 main reasons: 1) it shows the fragilities of the Nazi Germany towards the end of the war, with many German soldiers deserting the army (something nobody talks about) and 2) it shows the depths of the human ego and the decadence of character when power is given arbitrarily

From a dull beginning, to a great film!
9 July 2015
i am surprised to see negative reviews on this film. 1 star? I wonder what could have been so bad in the movie to deserve 1 star...

The first 20 minutes of the film are rather dull but as the film develops, the mystery unveils and the clichés disappear. Isild Le Besco (Laura) is fairly bad which is why the movie is so difficult to watch in the beginning, unfortunately.

Roman Duris (David) and Anais Demoustier (Claire) are excellent together. I could feel every line, every movement, every thought.

I felt deeply overwhelmed when the film ended. The trailer is perfect, as it doesn't reveal too much. Please do not read reviews of the movie with spoilers, you will certainly lose the surprise effect of the plot.

9/10

9 stars because of the beginning, otherwise WELL DONE Francois Ozon!

Only for those who seek a bit further from a movie, not only entertainment
5 July 2015
The movie is practically motionless and with no apparent story. However. the weight of the events is present.

The title "Ordinary people" represents perfectly the content of the movie. We sometimes wonder how it was possible to murder your neighbors, people who probably did nothing wrong to you; how it was possible to take part in a systematic cleansing without standing up against it, and just because somebody with little or no authority gave you orders to do it.

The story is very similar to Schoah - can anybody explain mass killings of Jews during the WWII? Ordinary people killing ordinary people. It will always remain a mystery, as suggested by the movie.
