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.
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.
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.
An uncomfortable watch. Extremely strong performances from all, and believable. I struggled through it though, as it lets you know roughly where it's going, and then just goes there. I didn't feel suspended by it, just wrung out. Worth watching for the acting alone, and it's beautiful to look at.
Super conformist drama with no subtlety in the story and very little to redeem. The class, gender and social dynamics are the parody of a joke, life situations. Only interesting when comparing with the relative finesse of the script of Nathalie... a couple days ago (which is still shown for a day at the time of writing)
If i could give this a zero I would. A character based film like this needs nuance and believable characters and this had neither. Really not impressed with madams acting, which was always OTT and ill considered. That scene where she bites her lip (for the viewers) before she rings the strapping lads bell was toe curling-ly awful. A big dollop of schlock.
