Mathieu Amalric's adaptation of Georges Simenon's mystery novel honors the text, but misses the atmosphere.
Well-acted (especially by Amalric who is extremely compelling), beautifully shot and unimpeachably crafted, it's a graceful rendering of a nasty little story that could have benefited from a little more formal nastiness too.
The Blue Room is a great little film - a slicing, rapid-fire report on adultery and possible foul play.
Amalric's handling is cool, studied and perhaps a little self-conscious. But he does a good job of showing how adultery is a noose that tightens at the throat even before an actual crime is committed ...
This is a clipped, fragmented piece of cinematic modernism, shuffling its time frames in a staccato narrative that makes for a tense, involving experience from start to finish.
