Movie Info

Liliane (Isabelle Huppert) lives a modest and monotonous life. By day, she works in a pâté factory, and by night, she sits on the couch and watches TV. One day, a new worker named Jean (Kévin Azaïs) arrives. The two form a platonic relationship, but Jean grows increasingly convinced that he recognizes Liliane from a European singing contest he saw as a child. Eventually, Jean convinces Liliane to confront her past. Souvenir is a beautiful portrayal of a friendship between two people from different generations, who come together to make a life changing comeback.

Defurne's film is highly stylized with vibrant colors and modern interiors. The incomparable Huppert gets to sing a few songs and model some fabulous dresses, but it is her sly, expressive performance that really dazzles.

[Bavo Defurne] lacks the mordacity and inventiveness to live up to [the film's] ambitious purpose. [Full Review in Spanish]

... [director Bavo] Defurne never finds the right tone to tell this (trite) story...

[Souvenir] lacks reflective moments and humor. [Full Review in Spanish]

October 31, 2017 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

... Souvenir tries to package its kitsch as dressed-up fun, but all it does is give Isabelle Huppert something to do between her real movies.
