For all of the apparent naturalness on screen, Guediguian's grim vision comes off as far too calculated.
It's a strong viewing experience but definitely worth the effort.
It's a pitiless film, uncompromising in what it shows us.
Always, one gets the sense that this film is coming from some place real, and terrible.
...the film's characters are familiar, real-life people, whose sadness reaches out from the screen.
La ville est tranquille is not depressing, but a sense of sadness permeates the film. As dramatic as it is, Guediguian's point is well taken: this town will remain quiet.
Too trying and unwieldy to keep my attention.
One of the best French films of the year.
Strives toward greatness, toward a complete understanding of life in the roiling, unsettled, complex locale they call Marseilles, and its partial success must be applauded.
Director Robert Guédiguian, who wrote the script with Jean-Louis Milesi and co-produced his film, delivers a story that's particularly French but also sadly universal.
This ville is far from tranquille, but the French twist on this emotional powerhouse keeps proceedings meditative as things go into the gutter.
It's got a lot on its plate, and sometimes it overindulges, loses focus and plays too obviously. Still, it manages to remain forceful and moving.
