This film has been crafted almost to perfection, the touch used is delicate and very realistic. It is interesting that such a slow pace should be so engrossing but it is. Thanks I think to the brilliant acting from everyone. Kirstin Scott Thomas stands out for such an understated performance, that when she does towards the end of the film show such deep emotion you are blown away. Her co stars do a great job keeping up with her, specifically Elsa Zylberstein playing her sister,the woman can cry on demand a face full of expression. Frederic Pierrot as the policeman, whose brilliance is only realised at the end of his part of the story. Jean Claude Arnaud as the grandfather, who without saying a word through the whole film is masterful. There could be a danger that this film is seen as a trudge through human emotion but I can assure you it is more than that. You will leave the cinema for filled and uplifted by the whole experience.
Is this Scott Thomas’s greatest role?
This may be the film that makes Kristin Scott Thomas’s reputation as not a good actress but a great one. It is a French film, and one has to accept the parameters of French ‘intimisme’; as such it is wonderful. It is not a question of being a parent or not: it’s a question of being ready or not to be swept out of one’s daily self by great acting. Elsa Zylberstein is a fine actress (I remember her with affection in ‘Farinelli’), but Scott Thomas here surpasses anything she has done before. She is capable, we knew, of making herself nearly ugly (‘Angels and Insects’); she can do understated sensitivity (‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’); here she gets a part of the emotional power of a Medea or a Phaedra and plays it with the let-it-rip force of a great tragédienne. The film is a vehicle for an actress, and none the worse for that. It is not unworthy of her, and that may be the best one can say of Claudel’s work; but that may just be enough. There was a curiously fugitive quality to KST’s interviews about this film: one got the impression she didn’t really want to talk about it in more than mundane depth. One can see why. It all goes very near the bone. She may want to do a sheer glorious comedy next, just to remind us all of the blithe side of her nature. Long may she live, and work.
