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.
An intimate, well-played if overstretched family saga.
The movie is plausible, tender and vibrant. Efira is excellent as a woman who habitually suffers in silence.
Corsini's ending is refreshing precisely because it understands that finding sustainable ways to live in the wake of trauma aren't neatly cinched by vengeance.
One of the more muted films of Corsini's career, a picture that quilts its fierce political heart with a woolly layer of female martyrdom.
An unbearably sad film dotted with brief glissando-like moments of sweet, sunny reprieve.
There are incidental efforts to offer social-historical comment on France in turbulent times. But it is the characterisation that really holds the attention.
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.
An Impossible Love is a modern take on melodrama, full of strong moments, approachable storytelling and anchored by a terrific turn from Efira wrapped up in a stinging rebuke of class rejection.
A subtle, harrowing, acid-etched story of love and hate...
Virginie Efira anchors this imperfect film with her earthy beauty and compelling emotional honesty.
This is the most accomplished and ambitious film to date from a director who has frequently explored female themes from a committed gender-politics perspective, but also employing an approachable mainstream art-house aesthetic.
