Movie Info

Actor Gerard Depardieu co-directed (with Frederic Auburtin) this drama about a married woman who falls in love with another man, which stars Depardieu and Carole Bouquet. Mina (Bouquet) is a movie buff with a husband, Georges (Depardieu), who's out of work, and a 15-year-old son, Tommy (Stanislas Crevillen). While Mina works part-time as a domestic for Claire Daboval (Dominique Reymond), the family is terribly short on money, so when Georges is offered construction work on a massive bridge

A wholly Gallic treatise on adultery and painful coming of age, handled with great sensitivity and subtlety.

Film Journal International

Though it lacks style and gloss, and it's certainly not a major event, it concentrates on telling an emotionally real story and succeeds.

Nobody does an adultery film quite the way the French do it.

A sophisticated and quietly surprising film about what happens in a marriage that one partner has outgrown.

Audience Reviews for The Bridge (Un Pont entre deux rives)

[font=Century Gothic]"The Bridge" is set in a small town in France in 1962 where a showing of "Jules and Jim" has let out. Outside the theatre, Mina(Carole Bouquet) and her 15-year old son run into a wealthy friend of Mina's who offers her a job as a maid. After notifying her unemployed husband, Georges(Gerard Depardieu, who also co-directed), Mina accepts the position. (Georges used to run his own small building company but it went out of business. And he does not really want his wife to be working...) At a showing of "West Side Story", Mina is seated next to Matthias(Charles Berling) and they go out for drinks afterward. Matthias is an engineer on a massive bridge project that Georges finds work at. Mina again encounters Matthias at her place of work.(He is staying with friends there.) And Mina and Matthias start a passionate affair...[/font]
[font=Century Gothic][/font]
[font=Century Gothic]I know the setup of "The Bridge" sounds rather implausible and contrived but then remember this is a small town where random encounters are much more likely. And in a small town such as this, everybody pretty much knows everyone else. This movie shows perfectly how a small town can stifle a person. "The Bridge" takes a subtle matter-of-fact approach to the material which is rather refreshing. The film is very emotional but it does not overdo it. And there is sympathy for all the characters. Plus, there is excellent performances from all the lead actors. [/font]
