Les héros ne meurent jamais

Aude-Léa Rapin Frankreich, 2019

Ronin's rating of the film Heroes Don't Die

A brave effort by Rapin, her talented cast and crew that did not quite come together. Interesting reincarnation idea that could have been exploited more subtly and effectively and can sympathise with those who see this as a cynical war/tragedy exploitation, although I doubt that was the director's intent. Enjoyed Adèle Haenel's performance within the limits of her script. Look forward to Rapin's future works.
