Critic Reviews for Back to Normandy
It's a bit too convenient to credit Philibert's film with Proustian significance, but this particular remembrance has been constructed with similar profundity.
Back to Normandy is never less than an extraordinary journey through time, memory and the repercussions of a baffling, bygone crime.
The testimony of Normandy's subjects is always fascinating; Philibert proves that not all directors should wade in the same river twice.
It is rather awesomely evident that when the cameras left, life -- and death -- simply went on.
Viewers should be won over by the director's warm humanity, puckish sense of humour and rich appetite for contingent associations.
Not so much an entertainment or even an illumination, but rather a personal cinematic scrapbook, which should be stamped 'return to sender.'
