Critic Reviews for Memoir of War (La douleur)
Resolutely somber, and self-aware about its deliberately tight and opaque visual style, it's presentational more than lived, a series of filmmaking choices instead of something deeply felt and conveyed.
"Memoir of War" is a movie that dreadfully empties a vast experience, that reduces colossal events to dramatic simplicities and trivializing shortcuts.
One of the best films I've seen about the ways in which grief can pull a person in both directions simultaneously.
Marguerite is played by Mélanie Thierry, and the performance is a devastating one: unease and confusion with nowhere to direct it.
Ms. Thierry plays Marguerite with an understatement that can be enigmatic, seductive, or deliberately confounding. The picture as a whole doesn't do justice to her committed performance.
