Critic Reviews for If You Don't, I Will
The two leads have played romantic partners in at least three other films, and their unforced intimacy here brings a certain heft to the sketchy characterizations.
A quiet, intermittently poignant portrait of two people who've lost each other and aren't sure they want to find their way back.
Many of the jokes, like the ones launched at the expense of Mellie's son's psychomotor problems, aim at the easiest targets, leaving the final products simplistic if not offensive.
Devos and Amalric, who worked tougher in Arnaud Desplechin's "Kings and Queen," win at least half the storytelling battle by seeming as though they actually have been sharing the same space, and the same life, for years and years.
Audience Reviews for If You Don't, I Will
In "If You Don't, I Will," Pomme(Emmanuelle Devos) and Pierre(Mathieu Amalric) are a couple whose serious money woes prevent them from even being able to pay John(David Clark), their personal trainer. That might be in part due to Pomme's being out on disability due to a benign brain tumor, from which she hopes to return from as soon as possible. In the meantime, she pays a visit to her son Romain(Nelson Delapalme). Aided by excellent tandem performances, "If You Don't, I Will" is a droll and perceptive comedy about relationships.(Hence the Gena Rowlands reference. Maybe.) At the center of which is how well or badly couples communicate. In this case, it is not what is said but what is not. Like, in the bus scene, I don't think Pierre was going to abandon Pomme but gave no indication that he was not going to.
