'The Adopted' serves as a calling card for Laurent, who displays a flair for character-based humour as well as strong visual direction.
Never develops into an engaging portrait of love and loss among a trio of thirty-something Frenchies.
It's a commercial movie rather than an art film, but a great deal less compromised than most of its ilk.
The film is harmless, whimsical, a little long-winded: While You Were Sleeping without Sandra Bullock but with extra Gallic chic.
Mélanie Laurent's sweet but schmaltzy debut establishes her credentials as a capable director, and she does good work with old Inglourious Basterd Menochet, too.
