The Girl on the Train (La Fille du RER) Reviews

Kelly Vance
East Bay Express

The Girl on the Train is a bit of a crime caper, but crimes of the heart, indeed, defects of personality, are what veteran filmmaker Téchiné is about here, with spotty success.

Unlike a lot of ripped from the headlines films, André Téchiné's 'The Girl on the Train' makes no effort to surprise viewers with unflattering or tragic revelations about its protagonists.

It's a well-acted, but frustratingly inconclusive exercise.

Like Techine's best films, the movie appears to be a story about nothing - until it suddenly becomes a meditation on the vagaries of the human heart.

This is Téchiné's gift -- not just detail, but telling detail; and not just slices of life, but slices as rich as a cassata cake.

Combustible Celluloid

Her act causes a bit of trouble, but thankfully Téchiné does not focus on it; instead he's interested in the truthful reactions of the characters, their combination of hurt and relief.

Don't expect any kind of neo-documentary examination of cause and effect. That's not filmmaker Andre Techine's style, and this is one of his most successful films.

Every world-class director is allowed to misstep now and then, so don't be too hard on André Téchiné.

Lacks sufficient focus, plausibility and an emotional core despite being provocative with a terrific ensemble cast and ...milie Dequenne's charming, radiant performance.

It is Dequenne who holds the film together -- she and Téchiné's youthful touch, which belies his 66 years.

Techine glosses over the story's most potent issue: France's complicated relationship with its Jewish community.

Given several years' distance from the media blitz, Téchiné brings clarity, maturity, and perspective to the case while still subtly addressing all the thorny social issues the affair touched off.

A complex and well-acted French film about lying and other deceptions that bring dark clouds and bad weather into the lives of the characters

Though told with verve and acted with diamond-like preciseness, it never plumbs the core of its story, and so risks being as serene and unreflective as Jeanne herself

There might have been deeper currents of envy and displaced shame to plumb in the case of Girl on the Train, but for once this reliably penetrating filmmaker hasn't found them.

Film Journal International

...exuberant but unfocused drama about a recent French news story that caused a sensation before being exposed as bogus. Jewish-themed elements may also help fill seats.

Téchiné has made a half-captivating, half-baffling tease of a movie in which one woman's destructive whim has the effect of making anti-Semitism look like a myth.

Feels like two different films cobbled together, without much to connect one to the other...the disconnect between the two is huge.
