La question humaine

Nicolas Klotz France, 2007

msmichel's rating of the film Heartbeat Detector

An excellent script from Elisabeth Perceval adapting the Francois Emmanuel tome into a mediation on business psychology, guilt and contemporary European identity. Klotz's direction is languid enveloping the viewer in its slow pace and eventual discoveries. Music choices may be disconcerting to some but fit and create the mood intended. Amalric very good here with fair turns by veterans Lonsdale and Castel.
