One of those intriguing films that functions without a plot, and uses instead an intense curiosity about its characters.
The film captures the joys and pains of real family life, never romanticizing them, and always presenting them with great perception and truthfulness.
Top-drawer exploration of the mysterious sibling bond.
Despite a few psychological explosions here and there, the drama is muted most of the way and it's sometimes downright dull.
[font=Century Gothic]"My Favorite Season" is about the troubled relationship between a brother, Antoine(Daniel Auteuil), and sister, Emilie(Catherine Deneuve), who are both middle-aged. Antoine is a brain surgeon and Emilie is a lawyer who works in the same office as her husband, Bruno. Up to this point, the siblings had been estranged for a few years when their mother collpapses at her remote farm where she lives alone. [/font]
[font=Century Gothic]The movie's structure is in four parts - which corresponds to the four seasons that the film takes place in - fall, winter(Christmas), spring and summer.[/font]
[font=Century Gothic]"My Favorite Season" is about family, first and foremost. Specifically, it is about the time for grown children to take care of their parents that once took care of them. The emphasis here is on the siblings and Emilie's children are simply distractions who are ignored for long stretches of time.(Thus, leading to one totally unnecessary bit of female nudity.) I usually don't care about this sort of thing but nothing is really explained about Antoine's personal life or why he lives alone. The whole reason for watching this movie is the immense talents of Catherine Deneuve and Daniel Auteuil and they do not disappoint in the least.[/font]
