Drama, Mystery
This 2011 melodrama by French writer-director André Téchiné may not achieve the profundity of his Rendez-vous (1985), Thieves (1996), or The Witnesses (2007), but it's clearly the work of a master storyteller, conveying a rich, novelistic sense of character and a poetic feeling for the passing of time. The characters include an aging, insensitive novelist (André Dussollier), a former model who becomes his second wife (Carole Bouquet), his wayward daughter, a world-weary lesbian detective, and the detective’s convict son. As usual in Téchiné’s work, these people interact and change in surprising ways, reminding us how unpredictable human nature can be, and the intoxicating style—based on graceful, near constant camera movement—conveys the director's deep curiosity about them. In French and Italian with subtitles.
