It's a tender, sympathetic film from a gifted writer-director, Algerian-born Josee Dayan, who obviously adores Moreau, Duras and literature.
Like its subject, Cet Amour-La has a knack for making you focus on the beauty beneath the imperfections.
It is a great story, but it hasn't been translated to the screen.
Alive and affecting.
Cet Amour-Là founders on the difficulty that faces all movies about artists -- how to contextualize the work into the life without putting the audience to sleep.
[Moreau] now in her mid-70s, takes charge of her scenes with an iron-fisted authority that refuses to acknowledge the inert movie around her.
Neither character comes off too well.
Moreau's small but telling glances are all the movie has to reveal Duras' loneliness and yearning for a last embrace, but at times it's almost enough.
That said, ``Cet Amour'''s commitment to truth does not always make for an enjoyable film experience.
Dayan never makes the love story accessible to us, never makes us understand what there is between this couple.
Moreau brings to the role the sophistication, creative passion and weary wariness only a fellow great artist could evoke with such effortless conviction.
Moreau ... who knew Duras quite well and starred in no fewer than four films based on the writer's work, perfectly embodies her friend, and is thoroughly magnificent.
