Movie Info

Noted French filmmaker Josée Dayan directs this portrait of a celebrated love affair between legendary novelist, scriptwriter, essaying, film director and television personality Marguerite Duras and Yann Andrea, a man who is almost half Duras's age. The film opens with Andrea (Aymeric Demarigny), an ardent fan who wrote her numerous letters, showing up at her doorstep of her apartment in Brittany. Though Duras (played by French film icon Jeanne Moreau) at the age of sixty five was not looking

It's a tender, sympathetic film from a gifted writer-director, Algerian-born Josee Dayan, who obviously adores Moreau, Duras and literature.

Like its subject, Cet Amour-La has a knack for making you focus on the beauty beneath the imperfections.

It is a great story, but it hasn't been translated to the screen.

Cet Amour-Là founders on the difficulty that faces all movies about artists -- how to contextualize the work into the life without putting the audience to sleep.

[Moreau] now in her mid-70s, takes charge of her scenes with an iron-fisted authority that refuses to acknowledge the inert movie around her.

Neither character comes off too well.

Moreau's small but telling glances are all the movie has to reveal Duras' loneliness and yearning for a last embrace, but at times it's almost enough.

Moreau brings to the role the sophistication, creative passion and weary wariness only a fellow great artist could evoke with such effortless conviction.

Moreau ... who knew Duras quite well and starred in no fewer than four films based on the writer's work, perfectly embodies her friend, and is thoroughly magnificent.

Moreau presents a magnificently ravaged lioness in winter, feisty as all hell, with occasional tenderness peeking through like rays through storm clouds.

I think we're supposed to feel sad when Duras dies at the end, but I was just glad this incredibly boring movie finally ended.
