The Truth (La vérité)

Critics Consensus

The Truth may not stand with Hirokazu Kore-eda's best work, but it finds the writer-director revisiting familiar themes with a typically sensitive touch.

Movie Info

Legends of French cinema Catherine Deneuve and Juliette Binoche join masterful filmmaker Hirokazu Koreeda (Shoplifters, Still Walking) to paint a moving portrait of family dynamics in THE TRUTH. Fabienne (Catherine Deneuve) is an aging French movie star who, despite her momentary lapses in memory, remains a venerable force to be reckoned with. Upon the publication of her memoirs, her daughter Lumir (Juliette Binoche) returns to Paris from New York with her husband (Ethan Hawke) and their young daughter to commemorate its release. A sharp and funny battle of wits ensues between the mother-daughter duo, as Lumir takes issue with Fabienne's rose-colored version of the past. Reflected cleverly by Fabienne's latest role in a sci-fi drama, their strained relationship takes a poignant journey toward possible reconciliation. Charming, bold, and imbued with endless emotional insight, THE TRUTH offers a relatable look at human relationships, featuring exquisite performances from its all-star cast.

  • Catherine Deneuve is so good it hurts in this dramedy from Japanese auteur Hirokazu Kore-eda.

    March 23, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • This movie is an absorbing serio-comic flourish.

    March 19, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • There's much to relish here.

    March 13, 2020 | Full Review…
  • It feels like a chamber piece because it is: a chance for the director to observe an ocean-going star in all her glory, to see what he can do as her captain.

    December 20, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The Truth, like so much of Kore-eda's work, is fundamentally minor; it has one of those slightly maudlin piano scores that he favors, much too blatantly announcing the wistfulness.

  • Foreign auteurs often go astray as they make their way to the West, and it's a relief that Kore-eda's approach to delicate family dynamics spans the language barrier, though hardly a surprise.
