French film critic, writer and director Pascal Bonitzer`s third feature film which he also wrote the screenplay for, tells the story about journalist Bruno who is having doubts about his communists believes and who no longer knows if it is his wife or his young lover he really loves. After having received a call from his uncle who is fighting for re-election as the mayor of a small-town in Grenoble, Bruno decides to help him, but on his way he gets stuck in a dark forest. In search for someone that can help him, he encounters a secretive woman named Beatrice.

This visually compelling and character-driven road-movie, a poignantly atmospheric mystery drama, which is an intriguingly written story about a middle-aged man`s entwining love life, is strengthened by a fine music score and good acting performances, especially from Daniel Auteuil and Kristin Scott Thomas. Ludivine Sagnier and Emmanuelle Devos are also good in minor parts. A stylish, humorous and somewhat romantic neo-noir from Jacques Rivette`s frequent collaborator, which was nominated for the Golden Bear at the Berlinale in 2003.

Taking it's inspiration from the opening lines of Dante's "Inferno": "Midway upon the journey of our life/I found myself within a forest dark", Petites Coupures is a Hitchcockian exploration of mid-life angst and obsession set among the achingly beautiful Rhones-Alpes region of France. Daniel Auteuil is,as ever, outstanding, as the politically and emotionally bankrupt hero who stumbles upon intrigue and possible redemption in an enigmatic encounter with the icily cold Kristen Scott-Thomas. As with Hitchcock's Vertigo the moral boundaries are blurred, but director Pascal Bonitzer keeps us focussed on character and motivation and the result is a deeply satisfying and at times ravishing addition to the French canon.

Format: DVD
The film looks great, and the actors and acting are spot on. But the whole thing, about a tedious bloke who everyone seems to find fascinating, going on an errand and getting lost in a forest and having incredibly pretentious conversations with a slightly mysterious woman, the whole thing is drainingly boring.

The dialogue is very much of the 'coffee? I'd love coffee. But would I? And if I did, what would it mean? Oh, kiss me...no, don't, we can't, it's the coffee - its central contradictions remind me too much of the human condition....'. I love France, French culture and the French language. I've seen loads of French films with these actors in, and thought they were brilliant. But not this one, I'm afraid.

Every time the story seems to be going somewhere, it goes somewhere else, leaving the audience (well, me anyway) wondering what's going on, and struggling to care.

Truly terrible, French film-making at its worst!

Désolé,
