Product Description

Looking For Hortense is a bittersweet comedie de moeurs that is French in spirit but universal in appeal. Damien (Jean-Pierre Bacri), a Chinese civilization professor, lives with his partner, Iva (Kristin Scott Thomas), a stage director, and their son Noé.

The couple's relationship has drifted into routine that has drained it of love. Damien finds himself trapped one day by Iva, who orders him to ask his father, a senior member of the French Council of State, for help in preventing Zorica (Isabelle Carré), a woman Iva knows, from being deported. But Damien and his father don't get on and are barely ever in touch with each other. This dangerous mission throws Damien into a spiral that will turn his life upside down.

I also saw this because of Kristin Scott Thomas and I found if quite enjoyable and certainly interesting. The cast are all excellent as I have now come to expect in a french movie. I'm so sick of so called action movies nowadays, so it's so good to see a movie about real people and their problems that are not sorted out by a sub machine gun. Then you Kristin for another interesting film.

Bof! Not a very joyful film, so leaves you feeling rather deflated. That said, well acted and I wanted the story to continue as the characters were quite well portrayed.

I chose this film because I enjoy seeing Kristin Scott Thomas acting. However, this film was just OK by my rating
and I would not recommend it as a very good film. If you've not much else to do, then do watch it, otherwise do
something else!

A tedious trivial film. I find it difficult to understand how Kristin Scott Thomas could participate in such a mediocre flm.
