Movie Info

In a delicate, even generous manner, Valérie Massadian's new film begins as a story of two young lovers' life on the fringes before shifting towards one of recent cinema's finest depictions of motherhood. Milla and Leo live clandestinely, their meager furnishings and sustenance countered by a love for which there is neither a logic nor substitute. But such an existence will only last until forces of nature take hold. Where is there to go in its wake? Milla considers every dimension of love, loyalty, and grief through a poetic, startling vision that recalls the likes of Barbara Loden and Chantal Akerman while remaining without precedent.

Although this quietly daring, decidedly nonjudgmental film doesn't ask or answer a lot of questions, it paints a cumulatively vivid portrait of young love and early motherhood.

"Milla" is a major achievement, a film that is at once as delicate as it is strong, a fitting testament to motherhood, to survival.

Something about Milla's ordinariness makes her worth getting to know.

Nervy restlessness pulses beneath the surface. There's always something that matters that these characters just can't quite seize.

Jonckeere is ebullient in the lead yet there's a subtlety to her performance that communicates Milla's gradual passage from a life driven by instinct to one where she must take responsibility not only for herself but for her son.

It has small ambitions, but comes across as an engaging film that deserves our attention.
