A role that is suited for Kristin Scott Thomas,in fact her presence is the only reason to watch.Not emotionally engaging,to the point of being not believable,with characters who do things in the extreme.
worked well because the characters were well cast and the standard of acting was verging on awards material .. worth a watch x
KST & SL seem nice pair, but I prefer Une liaison pornographique (1999) NB & SL better pair.
Not sure I believed the "love" in this had much to do with love, or that any thing "deep" that really would be worth all of this could come out of this brief contact between strangers from such different backgrounds... Kristin Scott Thomas suffers beautifully, as always, but this one didn't move me... The bit of surprise/mystery in the plot makes it watchable.
Uno de los peores films que he visto en mi vida. Demasiado obvia, demasiado cliché, predecible hasta el ultimo segundo... mujer rica casada tiene affaire con el constructor, esposo rico se da cuenta y la confronta.... terminen ustedes la historia. Si han visto telenovelas mexicanas se les va a ser muy sencilla la tarea.
I have no doubt about it. Kristin Scott Thomas should have won the César award instead of Isabelle Adjani last year. She's luminous in this film. LEAVING is about power. Love can't fight Power. An interesting little film.
a pearl (almost) lost. moving. never boring. finely directed. for we all wish we'd have such a love.
