[A] self-consciously art-house movie ...
The central performance is great, but the film itself is too light and its insights too on-the-nose.
| Original Score: 2/5
Caumon allows the film to unspool calmly, gently and unexpectedly hopefully to its conclusion.
| Original Score: 3/5
A study of grief and recovery set in Bordeaux and containing little in the way of dialogue, action or interest.
A pigeon trapped in a partition wall becomes a none-too-subtle metaphor for emotional stasis in this strenuous French chamber piece.
Bleak but bold filmmaking built around an uncompromising central performance from Sandrine Kiberlain.
| Original Score: 4/5
[An] unassumingly intelligent film.
Maudlin but moving, Yves Caumon's character study speaks softly but with wisdom.
This thoughtful film is modest in scope, but remains quietly moving in its portrayal of both nature and the transience of human feelings.
