If Leaving is a romantic parable, it is a dark and depressing one, emphasizing not the sensuality of attraction but rather the obsessive side of romantic behavior. This is mad love for sure, and that is not usually a pretty picture.
Leaving tells the kind of painful story -- of passion, betrayal, revenge -- we might read about every day in the papers, but it is the cool manner of its telling and an outstanding central performance by Kristin Scott Thomas that sharpen our interest.
Brutal retrato de una pasión arrolladora, y de un deseo de escapar casi tan inevitables como el mismo acto de vivir. Gran trabajo de Kristin Scott Thomas, quien vuelve a encontrar una inmejorable oportunidad de lucimiento en el cine francés.
Akin to 40s-50s female-driven melodramas, we get neither James Cain noir nor Douglas Sirk's preachiness. Rather, it's a straight-ahead slog into self-destruction, a character study ... sans the study of character.
