★★★★ review by Eli Hayes on Letterboxd
Just, y'know, Marion continuing to prove that she's one of the greatest actors of her generation. And those sparse moments of original scoring, good lord. My first Garcia film, and I don't think she'll be leaving my radar anytime soon.
(A lot of people are probably going to dislike this, and for allllll the wrong reasons IMO; there are going to be misunderstandings of directorial intentions/motivations galore, mostly related to gender politics and psychological authenticity.)

★★★★ review by Eleana on Letterboxd
Quite an amazing performance by Marion Cotillard!!! Such an interesting and moving story. A film I will have to revisit again soon. The relationship she has with Alex Brendemühl is just beautifully done, all parts it.💙

★★★★ review by Marina Antunes on Letterboxd
Marion Cotillard is brilliant as a free spirited young woman coming of age in post WWII France who is forced to marry a man she doesn’t love only to realize years later the sacrifices he made for her happiness. Gorgeously directed by Nicole Garcia, this lovely story of a woman coming to terms with her life is beautiful and touches on everything from suppressed sexuality to depression. A lovely, intimate story with great performances from Cotillard and Àlex Brendemühl.
