Critic Reviews for À nos amours (To Our Loves) (Suzanne)

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

This film could inspire a lot of self-examination for thoughtful older teenagers, and might act as a corrective for the dime-a-dozen teenage sex exploitation movies.

One of the cinema's greatest depictions of a father-daughter relationship.

His unorthodox dramatic construction rejects the symmetry of classical plotting, and the narrative has a quirky, self-propelling quality that allows for some astonishing things to happen.

Jan 26, 2010 | Full Review…

Arguably Maurice Pialt's best film, a startling coming-of age tale about a girl who who explores her sexuality against the setting of a dysfunctional, incestuous family. In her heartfelt performance, Sandrine Bonnaire makes a stunning screen debut.

a punch in the stomach after a fifth of whiskey, a horrorshow of sexuality where it simply shouldn't be.

May 18, 2006 | Rating: 3.5/5

A cogent French film about the subtle ways a troubled family warps a young girl's passage into adulthood.

my first pialat film is a family drama starring a luminous young sandrine bonnaire as a rebellious teenager using sex with random boys to deal with her complicated issues. even more troubling is the sudden turn to violence within her family, especially her unstable mother and super creepy brother. all seems shockingly real with wonderful performances by the actors, not least pialat himself, who plays the soon estranged father. i'll definitely check more of his work in the future

Excellent, though a little hard to follow - I literally could not keep up with this girl and all her "boyfriends", and by the end half hour I was totally confused as to who she was meant to be with, and what was going on. I was drawn to this movie as I like 80's films in general, and though it's not a typical 80's film, it still has that feel to it, while also being kind of mysterious and beautifully filmed. Sandrine Bonnaire is perfect as Suzanne and I found her family intriguing as much as disturbing. This is one messed up family, and Suzanne seems unnaturally close to her father, whilst her brother is unnaturally close to her. Her mother is just half insane. No wonder she has a few issues! There's not an awful lot happening in plot, but I never felt that it dragged or got dull.

It wasn't all that spectacular but it held my interest enough. The girl is very pretty and does a great acting job but the storyline bugs me a little.
