All Critics (53) | Top Critics (21) | Fresh (44) | Rotten (9)

  • Mademoiselle Chambon may be a small film about inconsequential people, but the situations and emotions it stirs up are universally profound

    November 13, 2013 | Full Review…
  • An impossible romance that is expressed delicately and without recourse to more than mild erotica.

    September 23, 2011 | Rating: 3/5
  • Slow your pace and pause for breath and there's a world of pleasure to be had from this unhurried small-town tragedy.

    September 22, 2011 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Too much of Stphane Briz's film is elegant water-treading, but there are candid little scenes, and one of those will-they-won't-they, Brief Encounter denouements that never go out of fashion.

    September 22, 2011 | Rating: 3/5
  • It hauls its bucket up slowly. We're not sure till the end, or even then, if there is much water in it.

    September 22, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A heartbreaking, ambiguous twist on 'Brief Encounter', railway station finale and all. Take hankies.

Audience Reviews for Mademoiselle Chambon

  • Jun 05, 2012
    A carpenter resists having an affair with his son's schoolteacher. Mademoiselle Chambon features strong performances by Sandrine Kiberlain and Vincent Lindon as the two lead characters. Their characters are built on silence and subtle looks that make them fun to watch. The film's plot is meandering, taking far too long to get from point A to point B with few complications in between. It's slow, but it's slow in a way that I've grown accustomed to in modern French cinema. What is more, I'm not sure what the film is saying. Is it merely privileging a content marriage with a passionate affair? If so, such an aphorism has been said often and with greater effect. Overall, Mademoiselle Chambon has strong performances, but the story is lacking in clarity and dimension.

    A thoughtful drama concerning a married man, falling for his sons teacher, and her returning the feelings, a slow burning drama showing what comes before the actions, and their encounters that bring them closer, its all handled well and performances all bringing weight.

    This was a lovely film that dealt with choices and how sometimes the very act of choosing causes pain no matter which choice one makes. The two lead actors, Vincent Lindon (Jean) and Sandrine Kiberlain (Veronique) gave us characters who conveyed their feelings with few words. There were silences that in another context might have been uncomfortable, but here felt completely natural because of the emotional presence of these two fine actors. The pace is slow, and does seem to drag at times, but the lovely scenery and the moral dilemma faced by these star-crossed lovers helps to assuage the languor one feels at times. Aure Atika plays Jean's wife (Anne-Marie), and her eyes tell us that she knows something is not quite right, but in true European fashion, rather than confront, she waits patiently for Jean to sort out his feelings. This is not a simple story. This seems like real people dealing with real moral choices and one feels that strong bonds are being tested. Those bonds that survive may thereby be stronger for the testing.

    A lovely and exquisite tale of unspoken romance communicated through a mutual love for music. Furtive glances and shared passions speak more than its shy, inarticulate characters can say. Aching use of music to tell its story, and say what its characters cannot. Brize's narrative is elegant and heartfelt.
