Embarrassing enough to stay lodged in one's memory forever, like a popcorn kernel stuck between your teeth.

This smoothly told tale is more of a character study than a romance, yet should still draw fans of romance fiction who will particularly appreciate Louis Garrel in the role of the dashing lieutenant Andre Sauvage.

Garcia's few edgy, explorative instincts soon give way to a far more decorous and far less interesting evocation of "exquisite" emotional suffering.

The ending pulls the rug out from under this tepid-to-medium hothouse drama.

[CANNES 2016] Nicole Garcia clearly knows how to tell stories on film, but gets mired in the nature of the film's source novel (by Milena Agus).

Even though the production values are top notch, the familiar story turns this into a dull experience. [Full review in Spanish]

Audience Reviews for From the Land of the Moon (Mal de pierres)


Marion Cotillard composes her character with enough sensitivity to prevent her from becoming insufferable in her selfishness, managing to make us feel sympathy for a pitiful woman who is in desperate need to surrender to her sexual urges and a love that will consume her.
