Shot and edited with crisp flair, Alice and Martin keeps flying off in unexpected directions, anchored by Binoche's dark, obstinate passion.
An involving love story between two emotionally damaged outsiders.
The sheer neurotic intensity of Techine's characters -- characteristically stretching both backward and forward in time, as in a Faulkner novel--holds one throughout, as does Techine's masterful direction and many of the other performances.
Alice and Martin is not to be missed, particularly in this endless lull of summer.
For all the increasing sophistication of Téchiné's technique, the emotions he deals with are basic, and all the more powerful for it.
Techine keeps a tight rein on his actors' dramatics.
Binoche and newcomer Loret give committed performances, but Alice and Martin's romance is never completely convincing.
This staid, somber film is heartening proof that what doesn't kill us might indeed make us stronger.
Andre Téchiné extracts superb performances and finds drama in the everyday moments of human interaction.
An excellent cast goes far to redeem >Alice and Martin.
Binoche's character is sketchily drawn. Although she gives an admirable, unshowy performance, her role is underwritten, with the script frequently using her as the engine that propels the plot.
The movie is long, but doesn't feel that way, and despite a dearth of interesting visuals after the first 20 minutes, it makes for a welcome change of pace from Hollywood
