La Belle Personne

Christophe Honoré France, 2008

Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film The Beautiful Person

Moody French drama attempts a mediation on love and trust, but can't seem to get its story straight. The characters never come into focus, which makes any moments of real emotional authenticity lose their way in a confused muddle of unconvincing character motivations. It tries to be deep and melancholy, but just ends up dreary and dull.
