Critic Reviews for Le bonheur d'Elza (Elza)
Bathed in the flamingo colors and Caribbean rhythms of its location, this deeply personal debut from the writer and director Mariette Monpierre develops with a lingering attention to sensation and sound.
The cast, consisting of mostly non-professional actors, deliver believable performances. There's an air of feminine energy throughout the film, bolstered by the picturesque scenery.
Sometimes I feel like a fatherless child. Monpierre, the first Guadeloupe woman director, projects her personal journey searching for her absentee father on this emotionally unfocused drama. In effect diminishing how single mothers struggle and prevail.
There is matchless beauty here in both the actors and the setting, but this study of family and race needed a surer auteurial hand.
