Critic Reviews for A Woman's Life (Une vie)
Credit to Stéphane Brizé for an impressive piece of filmmaking with a refreshingly contemporary approach.
Guy de Maupassant's first novel, about a trusting French noblewoman who follows her husband and then her grown son into financial ruin, gets a slow, sensual, impressionistic treatment from director Stéphane Brizé.
We warm to Jeanne's plight not because it is so relatable or familiar, but rather because every turn feels so vivid and so enveloping.
Brizé pays more attention to the tasteful costumes and the alluring settings than to the drama or the images.
The rare period piece that feels observed rather than pretended, Stéphane Brizé's "A Woman's Life" finds the prolific French filmmaker applying his ruggedly naturalistic style to some very different source material.
The woman, Jeanne (Judith Chemla)... which director Stéphane Brizé and his co-writer, Florence Vignon, follow for 27 years from the time Jeanne is 20, is unavoidably representative. Her afflictions are both symbolic and intensely personal.
