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.

Alain receives a communication from a woman who says that he was supposed to kill her husband. Now there are two possibilities for how she found out about that: 1) he got out of prison and took her back home. She tells him that she thought that he was still in prison, and then he killed her husband. So that's what she thinks happened. But in fact, she was actually helping him. 2) he's dead and she's running for her life from someone who was after her husband. She's trying to find her husband, but the latter has to work on his old farm to bring back the money he needs to support his family. When Alain arrives, his wife is no longer there and he tells her the truth: that his daughter, Marie, has taken her own life. So the movie ends with him dead and his daughter left at home. This is a wonderful movie about the true nature of the human heart.

I can't believe I am the first person to comment on this film. It is completely gripping. We are not even halfway through the film and we already know everything about the characters. I could go on and on about the performances but I would just be repeating myself. There is something about this movie that grabs you from the first frame. When the shots of the winding road and the icy winds are first set up, you cannot help but take a couple of steps back to give the camera a few inches to work from. It is so peaceful. I actually was able to see the film through to the end. I couldn't believe that this film was over a year old. I really don't know what to say about it other than: it is extraordinary. There is not a single scene that I didn't think of. I think the director has definitely created an experience that is unique. A film that has the power to make you feel like you are part of this film. It is not a boring film. It has that edge that just makes you want to be in the film. I am not ashamed to say that I have never been able to look at a film the same way. I know I have. This is the best film I have seen in years. It is that good. I can't wait to see it again. It really is a great experience. This is not the kind of film you see in the theatre, but if you are lucky enough to be in the right place, you should be able to see it at least once.

Not much has been said about this movie, and I am shocked to see so many people not having seen it. It is a really good movie and is an important part of the trilogy. My opinion of the movie is "It is a really good movie, but is not the best of the three". My favorite scene is when Franck and Claudette meet for the first time, and Franck gets a lot of recognition for having come to "the convent". Some people may say that the time line is not precise and they are used to see everything in one movie. I don't think that this is a problem. There are many things that are left out from the movie that give it some flavor, and the three films really do share the same sensibility. For example, in the second film, the long chase scene where Franck and Claudette's car is wrecked is about a month before the first film. There are also two scenes of the first film that were not in the second. These two scenes are of particular significance in the trilogy, as they reveal that the first film is not all about love, but about being faithful to a man who might be abusive to you. The second film has this thing about religion and the veil, but it's not present in the trilogy. It is just a description of a popular philosophy in France, but it is actually a very well developed and interesting idea. I also liked the scene with the blackjack cards in the film, where Claudette receives a much better offer than she was expecting. It was nice to see a French woman receiving such a good offer. The scene also has some of the most memorable quotes in the trilogy, as we hear from Juliette (Franck), Pierre (Claudette) and Maud (Claudine). There are many more that come to mind, but I think I've covered most of the "crude" aspects of the film. I rate the film 10/10.

Perhaps the most controversial film to come out of France in the past few years, THE VEIRITÉ (A La Veyrité) focuses on an unhinged psychopath, Oleg, played to perfection by the great Jean-Louis Trintignant. In many ways, the film captures the same sense of paranoia and fear of the unknown that is prevalent in the minds of many French. In the eyes of the French, a stranger, a foreigner, is viewed as a potential threat. The good doctor, a civilian medical student, takes pity on Oleg and helps him in the beginning of the film. As the plot begins to unfold, Oleg is told of his father's death and his mother's desire to stop him from becoming a killer. His doctor, who is an anthropologist, wants to understand his unusual childhood, to realize what he has become. This, of course, has very negative consequences. The medical student's girlfriend wants to move to France to study. Her brother is the only man she really knows in her family. Even though his father is alive, Oleg will be always haunted by his mother's death. As the plot unfolds, the viewer can see the blind passion that both parents have for their son. As we see Oleg fall further and further into the arms of the doctor's girlfriend, the viewer is forced to consider what life would be like if he lived the way his mother did. The way Oleg is portrayed, even in a small way, tells us that his mother did indeed love him and was unaware of what he had become. It's as if she was scared of the unknown and that was his father's fate. After the boy's mother dies, Oleg begins to have a lot of self-doubt. He is afraid of everything that could happen to him, but he's unaware of what might happen. The ultimate secret that Oleg hides from everyone is that he killed his father. As the plot unfolds, the viewer can feel that everyone is unknowing of his fate and that he has finally given up on his life. The way he hides from his doctor and his lover, the things that he does to try to forget about his mother, the way he hides in his garden, the way he attempts to get his mother's remains from her grave, his attempts to forget about her, and the way he hides from the world are all signs of his mental instability. In this film, I would rate the acting performances very high. I love the French films of Jarmusch, yet he is known to hate French films. I can only hope that some day, he will come to appreciate the quality of French films. I think he will love this film. Jean-Louis Trintignant was also very well casted in this film, and the performances from the entire cast was top-notch. One thing that I didn't like was that, at the end of the film, we see Oleg's father in a hospital. This is a major plot twist that will change everything. We then realize that Oleg killed his father. Then he kills himself. It's a very powerful ending, and I would hope that Jarmusch will use this ending to make a sequel to the film, which would be very interesting and possibly good. I hope he does. I would also like to mention that Jarmusch has made a few other films that I enjoy, including TOUCH OF THE THORN and THE SECRET LIFE OF AN APE. I can only hope that these films will not be forgotten and that they will be re-released in theaters, for everyone to see. Finally, I would like to say that this film is a must-see for everyone. It has great acting performances, it has great direction, and it has a great message.

I haven't seen the film before, but after watching this film I am going to go to the cinema and see it again. I can understand why it didn't get big but I'm glad to say it was so well done and it deserves every little bit of praise it has received. The cinematography, soundtrack, cast, and performances of the cast made this film such a pleasure to watch. I could not have expected a film that had so much depth, so many layers to it. I haven't even seen the American version yet. I want to see the original French version and try to understand some of the subtleties. I hope they release a new version on DVD soon. A lot of people are going to be disappointed because the film is not for everyone. It is meant for mature people and their parents. It also shows a certain perspective of how the film industry is. As a film student, it was like a life changing experience and I would definitely recommend this film to anyone. The cast was amazing, but so was the director. I look forward to seeing more of his work.

I would say that this is one of the best movies I have ever seen. It is more about a man who was the prime minister in a foreign country and just got to the office to get his new position. All the good things I have ever seen are in this movie. I don't think I have ever seen a movie that captures the frustration and the revenge that I felt when I was left alone in the country after the embassy was attacked. I have also seen this movie with the interpreter I was working with and the difference between us was quite evident. We had a very important job to do. If we had done it right, I don't think anyone would have been left out in the cold. And I can't believe they turned this movie into a novel. It is one of the best novels ever written and not because of the politics, but because it is told so well. But I would say it is even better than Moby Dick, which was based on a novel. I can't believe they turned this movie into a novel.

I watched this movie last night on TBS, on a pretty long flight. A very hard flight, to make it through to a movie that has a film distributor but lacks a screen writer and only really highlights the characters and how they were affected by the situation. I'd say that, aside from the first half of the film, it's a pretty accurate portrayal of a domestic situation. There are no outrageous plot devices that don't have to be there to set up a new or previous story, and everything about this movie is set up. This is not some easy to watch love story. While we follow several characters through many adventures, and there are numerous twists and turns, there is not really a huge amount of action. The characters all are quite ordinary, except for an incredibly well played Charley, who is the center of the movie. His character is so well played that, at times, I forgot to know what was going on with the others. He is truly a unique character, which is just as well, because I doubt that anyone would want to spend their time with him, other than to see him do something. As a result, the two hours was worth it, because I really like the characters. I think they were all extremely well acted, and I think that was very well balanced, which is something you don't often see in these types of films. I would highly recommend this movie, for anyone, but especially for anyone who has lost someone to an untimely death.

First of all, to everyone who has a strong opinion on this film, please don't pay attention to any of the negative comments. If you don't like it, then don't see it. But, please don't be bitter about it. It is a true masterpiece and I don't believe any film can be better. Now, onto the film itself. I was very impressed with the storyline. There are so many twists and turns that the viewers will be confused and will love it. I also liked the way they portray the real life of N'kosi (Jean Reno) and his struggle to adjust to his new life in Paris and in particular with the French middle class. The most important thing in the film is the performances of Jean Reno and Alain Delon. They make the film believable and not very long. Both of them are perfectly casted and the acting is superb. And, of course, we have the music, which is the best thing in the film. It is probably the most underrated film ever made. I can't think of another film that can be as powerful as this one. Well, this film is also underrated. But, there are some important points I think everyone must see this film for. The main idea of the film is that love and being loved are feelings of humanity. But, they are two different things. When love is negative, it is wrong and there are no explanations to it. But, when love is positive and it makes us realize that we should love and accept ourselves, it is better. And, as Alain Delon says in the film, there is a second emotion, which is like forgiveness. This emotion is necessary to understand who we are, as we need to forgive ourselves and recognize that we are not perfect. It is also the most important emotion to realize the importance of relationships. This is something that is often overlooked in the film, which is why I think it is the most underrated film ever. The film is very emotional, but also very realistic and it makes me think about my relationships with my family and my friends. I think it is extremely powerful and very memorable. This film is also very beautiful and I can't see why it hasn't been a success. I think it is the most successful French film of the last years and in my opinion it should have gotten an Oscar for best foreign language film.

This is a fabulous film with an incredible cast. The story of the poor looking boy and the rich looking girl was very moving. The film is well acted by all the players. The film was very accurate and did not give me the impression that it was made in the 90's. It was very different from a Hollywood movie. I am glad that this film was so successful. It will give people a good look at the poverty and poverty that is left behind in the US. I highly recommend it to all.

I've just watched this film, it's a dream like experience of a great film. I watched it last night, I love it, i'm still laughing over it. So many things are unexpected, but it's a great experience, it really is. The film has a great message and everything is so beautiful and well shot. It's a perfect film, so I think people should see it and make a choice for what's right for them.

From the opening credits we see the discovery of the alpine world of the La Jolla, California. The ocean, the land, and the trees in the lake of the mountains are stunning. These breathtaking scenes are followed by images of snowy mountains, serene landscapes, and the occasional shot of a soaring peak in the distance. This is the kind of cinematography that made me question the true definition of a cinematographer. There is a sense of verisimilitude that goes hand-in-hand with the visual images of these images, the sea, the mountains, the lakes. But it is only the beginning. The following four minutes, which gives us some insight into the life of the characters in the movie, is amazing. This is what makes the film a masterpiece. The image of the forest is one of the most powerful, alluring images I have ever seen. All the actors in the movie have incredible acting abilities, and they really are at the top of their games. The music in this film is phenomenal. It gives us a sense of the rugged, serene, and majestic landscape that is really a representation of the alpine world of the characters. The music in this film is really beautiful, and it is very reminiscent of its score from the first Snow Dogs. These scenes in the movie are one of the most effective scenes in a film I have ever seen. This is what makes the movie great. These are only two of the many brilliant elements that make this film a masterpiece. The story is also great. It is not quite like the first Snow Dogs, where we actually see the characters go through a number of different adventures. It is all about survival and coming out on top. This is where the plot of the story differs from the first Snow Dogs, but it is still a great movie. Overall, I believe this is one of the greatest movies I have ever seen. The acting in this movie is really good, and I loved all the characters in this movie. This is the one film that I would recommend to all people who want to watch a great movie.

This is an excellent movie, the acting is superb, the characters are so well developed, so sensitive, and yet, so true to the real life, and the future. It is a story of two siblings, Ruth and Emma, and of the social values in our society. In this story, we see the lives of these two young people, how they grow up, how they fall in love, and in the process of coming to terms with who they are, they become more and more aware of their identity and who they are. They are more aware of their own sexual identity than any I have ever seen in any movie, not even in a romantic comedy, they are in the process of coming to terms with who they are. I am so surprised that the movie was even made. I cannot believe that this movie was even made!

I wasn't looking for a film that would truly shock me. I was looking for a film that would take me in and make me want to be a part of it. This film has done just that. My wife and I loved this film and so did our son. It took us on a journey into another world that we had never been on before. There were no rules in the world of "The Forbidden Room" and I couldn't imagine what could happen if you didn't play along. We left the theater with an overwhelming sense of hope and I highly recommend this film to anyone looking for a film to be seen in theaters. Also, I recommend you rent this film, or buy it, because the fact that it's called a "film" only adds to it's power and it is a must see. We were not disappointed. As far as the movie itself, it was more than worth the money that we paid. It will stay with you and may never leave you. The plot itself is very original and entertaining, making the film a classic.

Many people have called this movie a 'transformation'. I don't know what that means. It was a simple story that was told in a very slow pace and perfectly crafted. I had the impression that this movie is about a man who has been raped, and now he is pregnant. I found this movie very moving and motivating. It also had a strong moral, it was not only about a woman's choice. It showed that it is possible to be happy with who you are, what you choose to do, and how you choose to act. It shows that people can choose what they are and that they can be happy without the right thing in their life. This is not the case with everyone, I know that for many people it is a very tough decision, but it was something that was explained very clearly. Many of us in the theater were moved and moved and then we understood why that man wanted to have a baby. It was a very powerful movie. It showed that people can be happy with who they are. It is not the right thing, but it is not the wrong thing. The decision you make can make a huge impact on your life.

This is one of those movies that I don't like. I don't like it because it is too difficult to describe the meaning of this movie. It's one of those films that doesn't feel real and that makes you wonder what you are looking at. It doesn't feel like a movie because it doesn't have a story. I'm very interested in cinema and I don't want to go to movies that have no story, no sound, no dialogue, and the only thing that you can see is a few people, maybe a short music video, maybe a big camera or a close-up of something. I want to see films that are not just a little. I don't want to go to movies that are just big and have a story. It's not a good movie if you can't find it in your DVD box. Sometimes I feel that cinema is about only the feeling of the things in it, but when I saw this film I couldn't find it, I couldn't feel it. I was surprised and a little bit touched by this movie because it is very complicated and a lot of people don't understand it. I hope that this film will help some people to understand cinema. This film is just a puzzle. It has a lot of questions and you can't see them but there is a lot of complexity in it and I can't help but think that people don't understand cinema because they don't see it.

The Whole Foods scene in this movie is absolutely the greatest. This scene is just so true to life. It's like an advertisement for that particular store. The actors are also very very great, but I can't stop thinking about how great one of them is. I really love how he reminds me of a young Jay Hernandez. I love how the whole story just sort of happened, and I really like how they play with time and space. It reminds me of how a book would be made. It's not a hard movie, but it's very hard to appreciate how good it is. It's a story about love, and about something more. It's very funny, and sad, and sad at the same time. It's not a movie that I can just watch, it has to be watched, and I think that it's very good, but it's not for everyone. It's one of those movies that makes you think. It's a masterpiece.

I've only seen one documentary, "The Calvary," a little while ago, so I don't know what to say about this film. But I have to say that it's absolutely great. I would say that it's one of the best documentaries I've ever seen. I've seen documentaries about organized religion and such, but this is really about what goes on inside people's minds. The film focuses mainly on the people inside the two families in a Catholic school in Wales. When you see these two families, you see the whole school, including the doctors. The doctors are really kind and there is a clear medical cover-up on the part of the medical authorities. In order to get a doctor for the children, all of the parents are required to have a medical doctor with them at all times. This film really takes you inside the mind of these families and gives you a really good insight into what they go through. The three primary characters in this film are the mother (Nicole d'Este), the priest (Ralph Fiennes), and the local priest (Toby Jones). Each one of them is really fascinating and I think they're all really good actors. I think they really pull their characters off perfectly. I think this is one of the most intense documentaries I've ever seen and it really makes you think. The film is based on a real story that I didn't know about. It's really well done and I recommend it to everyone. It really makes you think. My rate: 10/10.

Even though it's a little long, the film is worthwhile. All of the performances are excellent. The film was well received in the Cannes festival. The images are sharp and all the visual elements make this film stand out. It's a great film. It's just so beautiful.

I was very intrigued by this movie, as it left me with more questions than answers. I've seen a lot of bad movies (I'm French) so I'll skip over any criticism. The performances were excellent, but the story is definitely too complex to analyze at length. The difference between a masterful film and a typical Hollywood production is subtle, but in this case it is magnified by the director's obsession with gender politics and how to use his films to provoke discussion on sex in society. The strength of this movie is its complexity and the fact that it isn't afraid to do a radical feminist act - namely, that there are men and women who have just as much strength as a man. The film also has some great moments that leave you in awe, but when you put it into the context of the plot, it seems more like a paean to the power of cinema. A strong, eloquent voice, an interesting cast, a real story that moves you and some very provocative images are what make this film one of the best I've seen. Definitely worth the watch, I give it a 10.

It's a real shame that this movie never had an adequate distributor, because this movie, I think, is worth more than the score it has received. The acting is superb, the cinematography is breathtaking, and the story is powerful and important. And that's the reason I'm recommending it. Although some people may be surprised to find out that there is some sort of deeper meaning behind it, I feel that, although it is totally random, it is consistent with other messages. Like, I could think of that there is a lot of symbolism in this movie, but if you don't pay attention, you may miss a part. That's the way I feel about this movie, that I've seen it at least 4 times now, and I'm getting better and better at noticing it. The thing that I find most beautiful about this movie, and I don't mean about the actual imagery, is the way the director has made us feel about life. I was crying about a month after I watched it, and that makes me feel good, like I didn't have any idea what to feel. I think that was the best part of this movie. Maybe I was expecting too much from it, but I think that, if you want to see a movie that will touch you, that will make you think about things, that will make you cry, this movie is definitely one of the best I've seen. So, if you don't have any intention of watching it and if you don't understand French, don't. If you're thinking of watching it, I hope you'll understand that it is probably the most important film of the decade.
