There's something fresher in this Merchant-Ivory film about an expatriate family in Paris in the 1970s: It's not as tasteful, stately, and restrained as their other literary adaptations.

A fluidly acted and well-directed film about one family's capacity to adapt to changes with courage and grace.

Has a rich, 'lived-in' texture that gives the narrative a credibility not based merely on its actuality but on the conviction with which it is presented.
