A THOUSAND TIMES GOOD NIGHT tells the moving story of leading wartime photojournalist Rebecca (Binoche) who is torn between a passion for her dangerous job and her loving but worried family. This affecting film, which won the Special Grand Prix of the Jury at the Montreal Film Festival 2013, resonates with Poppe whose own experiences from his years as a wartime photographer for Reuters and other media are reflected in the film.

Rebecca is one of the world s top war photographers. On assignment while photographing a female suicide bomber in Kabul, she gets to near, and gets badly hurt. Back home another bomb drops. Her husband and daughters can no longer bear the thought of her dying while at work. She is given an ultimatum: Her work, or her family life. The choice seems obvious.

Rebecca swears to Marcus that she will never go to a war zone again. Yet the conviction that her photos can make a difference keeps pulling at her resolve, making it difficult for her to live a normal life as a mother and wife. Then comes an offer to photograph a refugee camp in Kenya, a place allegedly so safe that daughter Steph is allowed to join her mother...

This is an incredible film. Hard hitting and partly autobiographical (from the director Erik Poppe). There is exceptional acting, some dramatic cinematography and with a narrative that it is never easy to see where it will be taking you. Sadly there are very few light moments in this intense film.

Filmed on different continents and with an international cast this is an ambitious film but one that for me, has delivered something very special, especially the acting which is particularly noteworthy, from the two main female leads played by Juliette Binoch and Lauryn Canny but also true of the entire cast. This is no lightweight film and it offers much to think about.

With some really great acting and photography and a thoughtful narrative this is a great film though its subject matter can make it a bit tough going at times – though I guess the director wasn’t out to make a light-and-fluffy film.

Although I probably won’t be returning to this film as much as othr Juliette Binoche films, it is one that I will be watching again and would recommend it to anyone who appreciates good acting in a well directed film.

The DVD has the main feature and Scene Selection but sadly no extra features.

Film Movement has has just released 1000 Times Good Night on DVD. As with all their titles, 1000 Times Good Night is a multiple winner and official selection of numerous film festivals.

Academy Award winner Juliette Binoche stars as Rebecca, a war photojournalist. Rebecca is fearless, going to the front lines in war torn zones, putting herself in extremely dangerous situations. While documenting a suicide bomber in Afghanistan, she is badly hurt. It is only when she is in the hospital that we learn she is a wife and mother - and that her husband has had enough. An ultimatum is issued - her job or her family....

I was drawn in from the opening scenes of this film, fascinated and then horrified as I realized what was happening. The juxtaposition between the chaos of the opening few scenes and then cutting to the peaceful Irish countryside is jarring. And it mirrors Rebecca's feelings, emotions and state of mind.

Conflict, desire, want and need are wound throughout the film - the wars Rebecca covers, the struggle between staying at home and capturing conflict and exposing it to the world, to tamp down her desire to be where the action is, the need to document these atrocities for the world, the wanting to be a good mother, wife and friend and more.

Binoche is a brilliant actor. Her performance in this film is remarkable - moving and oh so believable. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau plays husband Marcus. He too, turned in a good performance - I understood his need to protect his daughters, but I grew angry with his behavior. Young Lauren Canny plays daughter Stephanie. The scenes between her and Rebecca are poignant, as Steph slowly comes to understand what it is her mother does - and why.

Format: DVD
The marvellous Juliette Binoche stars as Rebecca a photo journalist. We met her in Afghanistan taking a series of photos of a woman who is being prepared for a suicide bombing. Like all journalists - she is there to observe - not interfere, but she gets caught up in the whole extreme drama and is involved in the explosion.

Her husband Marcus - Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (`Game of Thrones') brings her home to Ireland and their two daughters for her to make a full recovery. It is then that the past catches up with her and she finally sees the dreadful emotional toll that her work is having on her family. However, she has always been driven by her passion to make the World see what really happens in conflict zones and that sort of passion is hard to suppress. Add to that the fact that she has become a celebrity for her work and the choice between family and work becomes ever more difficult to make.

There is an awful lot in this film and I did feel at one time that issues were not being addressed properly. The early scenes of the suicide bomber's friends crying as they said goodbye to her got me thinking. She seemingly has a choice about her death but her victims will never even be allowed the chance to say goodbye as she is doing - and that is both hypocritical and very sad. The issues around being an unwelcome voyeur, as some photographers are seen, are addressed but the real story here is the ripples that war has around the world and for those caught up in it.

I found this to be a very moving and quietly powerful film; it has a natural rhythm which is helped by the wonderful musical score and the pacing throughout that knows when to ramp things up and to let them drift.

Format: Blu-ray
Driven by anger over injustice and the desire to make ordinary people aware of it, courageous yet impetuous, Rebecca is an internationally acclaimed war photographer. Is this fair on her longsuffering husband left to shoulder the responsibility of two daughters, or on the children themselves, the elder of whom is beginning to grasp the full extent of the risks her mother is taking? Does Rebecca get too much of a buzz out of the danger? What exactly does her work achieve, particularly when she is seriously injured in the process? These are not the kind of questions, of course, over which male war photographs are forced to agonise to the same degree.

Starting with a tense scene in which Rebecca films a young woman preparing for a suicide bomber attack, some may find the film too harrowing. Yet, it is for the most part a moving and thoughtful examination of an important current issue. The grimness is relieved by moments of humour and the beauty of the Irish coast where Rebecca's husband works - and you can't help wondering, as he does, how she can bear to swap this for the dusty mayhem of Kabul or a Kenyan refugee camp. The film presents both sides of the argument, avoids tipping over into sentimentality, and reaches an unpredictable and well-judged ending.

Juliet Binoche's acting in the main role is outstanding, and she is well-supported by those playing her often bewildered husband and children.
