Manon of the Spring (Manon des Sources) Reviews

August 14, 2012
Berri also remains a boringly uninteresting director, dotting every i and crossing every t with nothing much on his mind but platitude.

Berri is unable to overcome the inherent feebleness of the Manon character, here played ineffectually by the lovely and talented Emmanuelle Beart.

There is a satisfying symmetry to events, with Manon able to take her revenge on the Soubeyrans.

The acting, from that of the four major stars to the numerous supporting cast members, is without flaw.

The movie is stuffed with cues for arias that are never heard.

Though appealing in its wispy way, Manon is only a continental soap opera.

All of this takes place with the implacable pace of a Greek tragedy.

Auteil's Ugolin is so well drawn, it's a shame to see the role lost.
