The Meteor

Forty-something Pierre is serving a fourteen year prison sentence. His mother, who is approaching eighty, visits him every week. Suzanne, Pierre's current wife, has moved on since he was sent away. Each character gives us a frank account of a period in their lives that seems suspended in time by the fragile connection between life on the inside and the world outside. Their destinies are linked by crime, guilt and loneliness, and like casualties of love and desire, they are dying to stick their heads above the water and breathe the air of life.

  • ★★★★ review by Ben Nicholson on Letterboxd

    The exploration of how one man's reckless drink-driving can cause imprisonment (of various kinds) for him and those who he loves. Told exclusively through monologues set to abstract imagery, it's one for art house fans. It's all perception and no plot; but if you can tune in to its frequency you'll find something quite mesmeric.

  • ★★★★ review by Mark Gubarenko | Марк Губаренко on Letterboxd

    Rashomon-style drama wins sympathy on every level. It's very professional level of making is what makes it's so outstanding.
