Private grief seems to unintentionally dwarf public horror.

It is hard to measure this production by the same standards as a feature film.

Mr. Wiseman's stubbornness is manifest in his work, and you will fall for the same quality in The Last Letter if you have any affection for his past work.

Samie, a leading light in the highly respected French theatrical academy, the Comedie Francaise, speaks with a broad range of subtlety and outbursts of emotion. And those words are powerful.

Wiseman's spare, elegant presentation does justice to the complex, passionate performance by the Comedie-Française's Catherine Samie.

Film Journal International

Through Catherine Samie's extraordinary performance -- she's an actress with the Comédie-Française -- Wiseman seems to conjure the ghost of a living being, and then to record her stalking.

First staged by Wiseman with France's acclaimed Comedie-Francaise, it has now been brought to the screen with all its devastating power intact.
