Critic Reviews for A Woman's Life
The narrative is suffused with subtle yet piquant moral commentary.August 8, 2018 | Full Review…
What saves this from being a dull downer is the lightness of touch in the direction and performances, the spontaneity of the dialogue as characters discuss dress designs or household expenditure.
A respectful adaptation, yet one that fails to translate the intensity of Maupassant's writing.
The director Stéphane Brizé does some lovely work with non-chronological flashbacks and flash-forwards, but the deadening sense that we know exactly where this is going (hint: not up) is never quite undone.
Whirlwind is something of a watchword for this inventive melodrama, which condenses into some 27 years into two hours, using daringly succinct, precise scenes, brilliantly spliced by editor Anne Klotz.January 11, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
A Fascinating period drama, made with a deft hand and an assured style. Beautifully made with some the impeccable lead performances.January 11, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
