In a few moments the British actress, playing a haunted woman named Juliette, will begin speaking French, but in these moments her face reveals more than any dialogue.

In a profession that routinely casts aside leading ladies when they hit 40, it's a shame a great one had to take her act to France to remind us that actors, like wines, only improve with age.

I've Loved You So Long isn't a perfect movie, thanks to the wrinkle at the end but it is so good for so long that it begs forgiveness.

This is a thriller, though, in the sense that it is a thrill to watch Scott-Thomas give one of the finest performances of the year.

Despite its flaws, the movie pulls you in with its squarely realistic setting and subdued performances. Best of all is Thomas.

[The] final twist undoes the film to some degree, [but] it cannot undo Scott Thomas's performance, one of the marvels of this, or any, cinematic year.

Utterly absorbing.

Thomas gives it her all, uncorking every ounce of emotion she'd held in check, with Herculean restraint, over the better part of two hours.

Kristin Scott Thomas gives a performance that is so chilling, so braced in pain that it's almost impossible to bear. Almost impossible, because, in fact, it's impossible not to behold this riveting piece of role immersion.

Without Kristin Scott Thomas, I've Loved You So Long would be a watchable but hardly a memorable movie.
November 7, 2008
An uneven new French film that plays like a companion piece to the recent British drama Boy A.
November 7, 2008
Like a good book, I've Loved You So Long unfolds in chapters. And when it ends, you close the cover with emotion and reluctance.
November 3, 2008
You may need to see I've Loved You So Long twice in order to see it once.
October 31, 2008
Kristin Scott Thomas' performance in I've Loved You So Long is one of a small handful of highlights by which people will remember this year in movies.

Philippe Claudel is a successful French novelist, so it's odd that his filmmaking debut suffers more from narrative than cinematic flaws.

Thomas packs infinite amounts of nuance and agony into such moments, and after a while she outraces the movie itself.
