Movie Info

Separated from her biological father for more than a decade, a teenage girl living with her mother in Paris sets out to reconnect with her wayward dad in director Mia Hansen-Løve's sincere family drama. Years ago, Victor and Annette spent an idyllic spring in Venice with their beloved daughter, Pamela. Though Victor would frequently neglect his work in favor of frolicking with Pamela outdoors, visiting Annette's parents, and hanging out in the park with local drug dealers during those picturesque days, lovelorn Annette remained convinced that her husband would become more responsible when her family returned to Paris. Old habits die hard, though, and soon after returning home, Victor and Annette have a monumental blowout. In the aftermath, Victor moves in with a junkie he has fallen in love with and Annette disappears into the city with Pamela. Flash-forward 11 years later, and 17-year-old Pamela is still living in Paris with her mother. When an inquiry into father's whereabouts reveals that Victor is living nearby, curious Pamela decides to check in on her long-lost dad. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

Audience Reviews for All is Forgiven (Tout est pardonné)

"All Is Forgiven" starts in Vienna in 1995 as Victor(Paul Blain) and Annette(Marie-Christine Friedrich) celebrate the sixth birthday of their daughter Pamela(Victoire Rousseau). As well as things might seem, he slips away for an appointment with his drug dealer. Things do not go any better on Victor's home turf of Paris where his drug use continues, along with his writer's block which he confesses to his sister Martine(Carole Franck). And things are only about to get worse for Victor... "All Is Forgiven" is a poignant and deeply affecting movie with a nicely ambiguous ending. As writer-director Mia Hansen-Love pointed out in introducing the movie, it is about the passage of time. The movie is broken up into two halves with a deft transition in focus. Unlike the buildings and other structures referenced(just a quick reminder to never tell a child about collapsing bridges because then you will have to deal with her nightmares), people require much more sensitive and complex repairs, as they attempt to move forward with their lives. What may have been done for the best intentions at the time, may have ramifications for all concerned down the road. So, do people really change over time? And is love just another drug?
