A heartbreaking, ambiguous twist on 'Brief Encounter', railway station finale and all. Take hankies.
October 29, 2010
A charmingly direct film of simple contrasts about the difficulty of change.

One way to think of Mademoiselle Chambon (a chambon is a piece of a horse's halter) is as Brief Encounter as reimagined by Eric Rohmer.

Mademoiselle Chambon is moving in spots, but it doesn't stir you the way the best films about heartache do. You feel for these two star-crossed lovers, then forget about them the moment the movie is over.

Mademoiselle Chambon is about love in midlife, about two souls meeting, and how that can be the most beautiful thing in the world but also the most inconvenient.

Briz does score a nifty variation on the clichd rushing-to-meet-destiny climax. But this encounter, brief indeed at a mere 90 minutes, doesn't fully convince.

Mademoiselle Chambon may be a small film about inconsequential people, but the situations and emotions it stirs up are universally profound
October 26, 2011
By paring everything right down, director Stphane Briz elegantly proves that less really is more.

It's a touching, measured, well-observed film that uses music (the teacher is a trained violinist) skilfully.
September 24, 2011
Understated, powerfully emotional drama that plays like an updated French version of Brief Encounter, thanks to a superb script and terrific performances from Vincent Lindon and Sandrine Kilberlain.
