Audience Reviews for Plus Tard (One Day You'll Understand) (Later)

  • Nov 17, 2008
    [font=Century Gothic]Directed by Amos Gitai, "One Day You'll Understand" is an intelligent, intriguing but not entirely successful movie set in 1987 around the time of the Klaus Barbie trial. Victor Bastien(Hippolyte Girardot) has a personal stake in the proceedings as his maternal grandparents died in the Holocaust while their daughter Rivka(Jeanne Moreau) survived.(It is strange that with a movie like Victor that is so obsessed with personal details, that her survival is never quite explained.) While focusing on beautiful moments and camera movements, there is very little story to speak of. Using the trial as a focus is not a bad idea to explore France's role in the Holocaust, but it was 17 years after the making of the very thorough "The Sorrow and the Pity." It is a shame considering what the movie has to say about identity in the wake of Rivka, of Russian Jewish heritage, marrying into a Catholic family and the effect this eventually has on her children. And like "The Sweet Hereafter," the movie brings up the notion that those who are obsessed with history were never there in the first place, while those who lived through it do not have to be constantly reminded of the fact. For example, Rivka seems particularly comfortable with the antiques she owns. In the end, the past may be a nice place to visit but it is the present where it is best to stay.[/font]
