Critic Reviews for La Vie Promise
There is nothing [Huppert] can't do -- except save Promise from the valley of the shadow of bad French movie pretensions.
Like an old Hollywood star vehicle, this French import does its job, providing its lead actress with compelling emotional circumstances and its audience with arresting contexts through which to perceive her.
It all does come down to Huppert with this film, to the moods, emotional states and character moments she can create, to the delicate magic she can work on screen.
Even Huppert can only do so much to sustain a phony weepie about the impromptu parent-child road trip that occurs after Sylvia's estranged teenage daughter 'accidentally' kills one of Mom's brutal pimps.
[The film is] strongest when Huppert is plying her sordid trade, her face a cracking mask of emotional devastation.
Audience Reviews for La Vie Promise
A slice of a story of a disturbed woman, but the kind of stereotypical pretentious art film so often lampooned. Still okay, but definitely take with a grain of salt.
