Again, another film I did not expect too much from, but which was SO good i forgot it was subtitled - always a good sign. ( not that subtitles are bad, per se, but sometimes it can be distracting) Give Kirsten Scott Thomas an Oscar , someone, because she shows in this what a really good actress she is, by underplaying it. It's hard to do this film justice by describing it, as som epeople may find it slow - it's a film about family, memory, regrets, and the consequences of what we do. More like
Pulls you in

Kristin Scott Thomas' haunted expression will stay with you long after you're done watching this. A gripping, beautifully crafted story, this charts the main character's slow path to redemption while keeping us guessing as to what exactly she did - and why. Exemplary acting all-round, right down to the mute old man reading books in the study. Recommended.

Kristin Scott Thomas shines as a troubled woman struggling to come to terms with her past. The films slow pace eases you into the story until you are utterly involved in her plight. Extremely well acted, this is a fine French language drama which deserves to be seen by a large audience.

This is a really great film and is well worth a watch! Don't be put off by the subtitles as you soon forget them as the standard of acting draws you in to the story very quickly. Wonderful acting and a really interesting story that will challenge your assumptions.
Holds Your Attention

Quietly gripping movie keeps you wondering what lies behind the deep sadiness of the main character, well portrayed by Kristine Scott-Thomas. I enjoyed the film and my attention was held for the entire movie.
