Critic Reviews for An Impossible Love (Un amour impossible)

  • It later takes a decidedly darker turn...but the emotional power is consistently undercut by the sense that we, as an audience, are being roundly manipulated.

  • Corsini is a film-maker who has always been drawn to the themes of female sexuality and the challenge and transgression that it represents. This is her best picture so far.

    January 3, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • A subtle, harrowing, acid-etched story of love and hate...

    January 2, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • An intimate, well-played if overstretched family saga.

  • Un amour impossible is a tough watch, but oh, what a beautiful film. The period costumes are not only gorgeous but the textures are rendered with such precision you feel like you could reach out and touch them.

  • The movie is too conventional for its own good, even though the love triangle that it portrays is full of sharp edges that harm. [Full Review in Spanish]
