Emmanuel Finkiel's haunting and hypnotic adaptation of seminal author Marguerite Duras's autobiographical novel "The War: A Memoir." In 1944 Nazi-occupied France, Marguerite Duras (Mélanie Thierry) is an active Resistance member along with her husband Robert Antelme. When he is deported to Dachau by the Gestapo, she dives into a desperate struggle to get him back, and enters into a high-risk game of psychological cat and mouse with French Nazi collaborator Rabier (Benoît Magimel). But as the months wear on without word of the man she loves, Marguerite must begin the process of confronting the unimaginable. Through subtly expressionistic images and voiceover passages of Duras's writing, director Emmanuel Finkiel evokes the inner world of one of the 20th century's most revolutionary writers.

This movie is very interesting to see, because you have to pay close attention to the dialogues, because they are really interesting. I am very impressed that this movie was made by the same people that did "Being John Malkovich". It's a very well-made movie, but the best part is that the movie contains a lot of details about the "hippie culture" that was growing in France in the 50's, and it's very interesting. What I find interesting is that the characters are very real, but also very bizarre, because you have to really pay attention to see it. In other words, it's not only a movie about drugs and sex. The director is extremely famous for his "interruptions" (which are great), but I think that he also made a good movie with this subject, because he had to use some more hard-hitting stuff. There's also a bit of drug use in this movie, which is not common in French movies, but it's very different from what you would expect. Overall, a great movie, but it's not one of the best ones. 7/10

This film has been called the "Memento" of French cinema. It is about a young man named Jacques, who is suffering from memory loss. It is hard to get to know what is happening to him, or what his past has to do with his present. This is the challenge of the film. A film in which the movie is more than a story. It is also about the relationship between a mother and a son, and how they try to find their way to each other. The main character is a mother. In the beginning we see her and her son arguing, as Jacques seems to lose his memory. The mother tries to find a way to comfort Jacques. She helps him with his homework, makes him a cup of coffee, and even takes him to the movies. The two of them end up meeting again in a cafe, and after some time, Jacques finds out that his mother died from a stroke. He feels a lot of guilt about that. This is what the film is about. There is also a relation between the two men. The father has a wife and a son. He is not happy with his wife, who is constantly talking about the relationship between Jacques and his mother. The mother and father have to work very hard to forget the past and move forward. The father is desperate to find a way to communicate with his son, but is also scared of losing him. The father has no idea what to do with the fact that he has lost his son. It is a very difficult problem. It is the kind of film that I would like to see again. It is a very difficult story to watch, and this is a problem with a lot of movies. I liked it very much.

I liked the idea of the film, and the whole concept of the focus on the soul. However, the execution of the film was not well done. The end of the film leaves the audience feeling unsatisfied. The entire film was centered around the main character, the main character was not much of a character at all. He was a very one dimensional person. The rest of the cast, however, was very strong, especially Naveen Andrews. The main character, however, is not a good person. The whole movie could have been done much better. But, I was still interested in seeing the movie. I also thought the film was a little over-dramatic. The director of the film, Francois Cluzet, tried to make the film more realistic, but I think it was a little over-dramatic. I also thought the movie was too long. The film, overall, was interesting. It was not the best film I have seen, but it was an interesting film.

I've watched many movies this year and I was pleasantly surprised with this one. It had some moments of beauty and I can't deny that it was a bit too slow at times. But it had some wonderful moments. I also appreciated the acting and the camera work. The music was just good. It was not overdone or pretentious. It seemed to fit in well with the scenes. But I do not know if it was because of the movie or because of the director. I've never been a fan of music in movies and music in movies should have a purpose. It should be used in the right place. I think it was used in the wrong place. I was expecting more and I did not. Maybe that's why I was not very impressed with it. I don't think I'm much of a Nicolas, and I don't think he's a very good actor. But I liked this movie. It's a movie I would definitely watch again. It's a great movie. I hope the director learns a lesson about his work. He should improve.

I saw this movie when it first came out and the ending seemed like a real cop out, as if the director wanted to give us a show or something but then realized he had already done it. I've seen many good films with which to compare this one. I really enjoyed the way that the director managed to take us through his 'memories' of his life as a teenager, while at the same time he was trying to realize that he doesn't really know what he wants to do with his life. This movie was not about "the story", as many have been saying. It was about the journey of a man who realizes that there is no one out there for him to follow, and that he is wasting his life. The film is very well-written and well-acted, although I do feel that the script is a bit over-dramatic at times. Nevertheless, this is a very well-made movie that I would recommend to anyone. I give it an A.

I'm always fascinated by this movie. I don't know why, but I'm always watching it. And I always find something to enjoy about it. The story is simple. And that's what makes it so compelling. The story is told in such a way that it is never boring. It is always intriguing, and never boring. The characters are very realistic and very well developed. There is not one boring moment in this movie. Every character is complete. I think the story is very important and it is very good to see this kind of stories told in such a way that it is not boring. It is a pity that there is no English dub. If this is possible, I would really appreciate it. I like the way it was filmed, with some low-budget tricks. I can't say I'm a big fan of French cinema, but I do have a liking for French cinema, and this movie is definitely one of the best movies I've seen in the last few years. I'd definitely recommend this movie to anyone who wants to see a well-developed, well-written story with great acting and a very good direction. If you are interested in films and cinema in general, this movie is definitely one of the best movies I've seen in a very long time.

I'm sorry to say that my expectations were not met. I was expecting something more from a film which had been described as 'the French film of the decade' and I was in fact disappointed. Perhaps I would have been more satisfied had the film not contained so much talk about God and religion. All in all, the film was interesting and I enjoyed it. My only complaint is that I feel that it could have been better.

In a movie theater, I was amazed by the great story. I found myself laughing and feeling sympathy for this young girl, I was never like that before. The story is interesting, even the ending was the best ever. It gives me great pleasure to see movies like this. You should see this movie, you will not regret it.

I like how this movie left me with the feeling that the characters are actually real people, who lived their life in a way you would never see. It was interesting to see how people became really famous, but were so fast to reject fame, fame became more than fame. It was like in the movie you could see that this movie is about a man who has to suffer the loss of his wife and the struggle to survive. And also how fame is a lie that will keep you. (This is actually the last movie I saw in French, after many years, so this movie really opened my eyes to French cinema, and also to French culture.)

I am truly in shock. There are so many people who are completely losing their minds with this movie, and it seems to be mostly people in Europe. Not that the movie is bad, it's just that there is so much negativity that seems to be going around. So I am going to try and explain what this movie is, and why I think it is so fantastic. I think this movie is one of the best films of all time. The cinematography is breathtaking, the plot is captivating and it all builds to an amazing ending. There is no other way to describe this movie. It is simply brilliant. If you want to know more about this movie, I would recommend the book. It is definitely worth reading.

This film was great. It is the second film I have seen by Luc Besson. I must say that the movie is better than his previous films, which are all very good films. I enjoyed this movie a lot. I liked it very much. It has very good actors. You will see the best in this film. I am a great fan of Vincent Cassel. He was great in this film. It is one of his best performances. You will like him in this film. And you will see great performances from Emmanuelle Beart. I hope you will see this film. And you will like this film. This is a great film. I can see it over and over again. I think that is why I like it so much. It is one of my favorite movies. I give it a 7/10.

I really enjoyed this film. It is very emotionally charged and makes you feel a lot of emotion. The ending left me in tears. It has a lot of "punch" in it and it keeps you on the edge of your seat. It is an extremely powerful film, it makes you feel as if you are experiencing it for the first time, and is very powerful. I give this film a 10/10. Highly recommended.

Great movie. My mom tells me that the movie is her favorite. I saw it when it first came out and now that it is on Netflix I can watch it every time I want. I am not a fan of the music. My mom says that the music is important to the movie. It has been one of my favorite movies since I was a kid. It makes me feel good and it reminds me of what a happy and peaceful life should be. The acting is great. It is amazing to see how well the actors can play with each other and how the music and the acting matches each other perfectly. My favorite character is Lisette, I have not seen her in any other movie but this one. Her character is very sweet and she helps everyone in the movie and in their lives. I have never seen her in other movies but this is the only movie that I have ever seen her in that is good enough to watch again and again. If you are looking for a great movie with great acting and great music, I would recommend this movie.

I saw this film last night at the Edinburgh film festival, and was blown away by the beauty of this film. The style and the aesthetic beauty of the film was so fresh and innovative that I found myself in tears in several scenes. The acting was superb, the story was riveting and the cinematography was stunning. I have seen this film twice and will be going to see it again this weekend.

I think this movie is more about one person's view than about an imaginary world. The script is a bit hard to follow, but I guess the director wanted to make a statement about the French mentality. My guess is that it is a movie of extremes: extreme in the point of view of the spectator, extreme in the point of view of the artist. To understand this movie, you should have to live and see the society and the way of living of people who live on the ground. To understand the story, you have to have to understand and understand the life of those who live on the ground.

This is an ambitious and daring debut by Jean-Pierre Jeunet. The style is rich and detailed, with a whole host of images, all of which are very much the standard of the period. There are little touches of humor and a very poetic, very poetic ending. I didn't get bored watching this film, I felt it was very long, but I didn't feel it was long enough. It's a very demanding film, but I'd recommend it to anyone who has a taste for a very "imaginative" kind of film.

The picturesque countryside of Brittany is used to fantastic effect in "La Douleur." The residents of a French-speaking community in Brittany live a simpler, more natural existence. For them, living without water or electricity is a luxury. Even so, the villagers see themselves as victims of an unjust, tyrannical system that has failed to recognize their needs. The villagers recognize the reality that they face, and they choose to fight it. They refuse to participate in the meaningless, savage game of survival and take matters into their own hands. The result is a film that presents a peaceful, rather depressing and even depressing vision of life in Brittany. It's a film about a community that refuses to become victims of the French authorities, the French system, and the French government. The film tells a story of life, hope, and love. It's a film about what it means to be human. In Brittany, this is a strong message that needs to be delivered.

This is a surprisingly good film. I love French movies and this one is very French in it's mood and message. The movie has a very good mix of French and English. The movie takes place in an apartment building where a young couple have trouble adjusting to the world outside. The film focuses on the relationship between the father and the son, who have to get along with each other. The mother is a very passive, almost a helpless person. The son is a great actor and does a great job. He plays the role very well. The director has done a great job of filming the movie in a unique way. It's a very interesting and unique movie that has a great message and style to it. Overall, this is a very good film, and worth watching.

Saw this at a Toronto Film Festival screening, and I am not sure that it will win any major awards. It is a very nice, simple story. (You'll understand it in time.) I would not call it an artistic movie. It is very low budget, and it shows. But it is an honest, and it does not fall into the trap of turning every detail into art. The plot is not complicated, but it is simple. The acting is fine. It is the characters that really matter. The director, Victor Magarinos, is a very talented director. The story is not a perfect movie, but it is a very good one, and it is easy to get absorbed in the characters and their life. I did not expect much from this film, but I have to say that it was worth the wait. It is not perfect, but it is very good.

This film really touched me. It reminded me of a time when I didn't have to deal with the media, drugs or sickness. It really touched me because of the depiction of a strong, courageous woman. It showed the ordinary lives of everyday people and made them even more beautiful. This movie is very important, because it really represents a time when the society and media weren't that powerful. But nowadays, it is all too easy to get more and more fame and money, and it's not a good thing. I think that movies like this one can be a source of inspiration to people who want to make a difference and a change in the world. This movie is definitely a must see, because it really is a masterpiece, and I strongly recommend it to everyone. "La Douleur" is a must see, because it really is a masterpiece, and I strongly recommend it to everyone.

I had seen this movie in a movie theater in Paris. I felt moved. I thought I saw my child again. But, I was wrong. The story of the relationship between the child and the teacher was very emotional. The child and the teacher's mutual love and respect for one another was inspiring. The movie was a miracle, with beautiful images, and the narration was so true. I don't know what to say more, except that I would recommend this movie to everyone. The message of this movie was so clear and so real. I would like to give a special thanks to Philippe Lemos and his actors for their tremendous efforts. This movie deserves to be shown on the big screen in France. I don't know how many people in the world have been touched by this movie, and so inspired.
