Feels like one idea stretched into a modest, colorful display. But what a sweet display it is.
Becomes a quiet tribute to friendship, and to the way that something torn can be made perfect again.
Éléonore Faucher's quietly assured debut is a lovely, almost painfully intimate story of female bonding that never panders to its characters or its audience.
Eleonore Faucher, first-time director (and co-writer) of the French charmer Sequins, is well aware of Neymark's allure and sees to it that the young woman is seldom out of the frame.
In this decorous trifle from France, the director Éléonore Faucher builds her story with studied deliberation and piece by precious piece.
Sequins hinges on its performances and newcomer Naymark is a marvel of quiet intelligence, endowing Claire with a complex mix of virginal purity and hormonal rage.
There's barely a laugh or a smile in the entire film and, after a while, there's just so much quietly desperate angst and anomie a viewer can take.
At its best, the film is as delicate and lovely as the gorgeous sequin-embroidered designs the women spin on spider webs of diaphanous materials.
Sequins is a lovely calling card for its maker and its stars.
...Éléonore Faucher's film is a timeless, multi-layered affair of artistry, apprenticeship, friendship and love
Touched with eerie dream sequences, the film casts a strange spell that's enhanced by the rhythmic, almost sensual depiction of the painstaking art of embroidery.
Faucher's filmmaking is exquisite, Naymark's acting is luminous, and superb use of music lends a crowning touch.
A well done character study, this follows a young woman dealing with an unplanned pregnancy. Claire (Lola Naymark) hides her pregnancy from her friends and family as long as she can and even changes jobs to prevent discovery. The job change provides Claire with the sanctuary she needs to begin to come to grips with her situation and to sort out her options, even as she helps her new employer come to grips with her own tragedy. The young actress captivated this viewer. She is quite beautiful with the most luxurious head of red hair this viewer can remember seeing. But her ability to communicate her hidden emotions non-verbally was extraordinary. Ariane Ascaride played her employer, Madame Melikian, and brought a quiet dignity to the role of a mother dealing with the loss of a child. The supporting actors offered solid performances that fleshed out the story. Some lovely scenery and interesting camera work complete the package.
