What an affecting film! These actors were perfectly cast, and the two leads were so natural.
Malle doesn’t force this sad and touching story on you, nor does he force the emotion. He didn’t need to. You feel it without any help.
Fortunately but at the same time, unfortunately, the film looked and felt all too real.
The pacing is wonderful, the dull colours are extremely fitting, obviously the direction is fantastic, and I’ve already mentioned the great performances.
I loved this film and look forward to seeing it many more times in the future.
