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.

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.
