A Christmas Tale

Un conte de Noël

Regisserad av Arnaud Desplechin
Frankrike, 2008
Komedi, Drama


A matriarch’s need for a transplant from a blood relative brings a reunion of the volatile Vuillard family at Christmas. Yet a simple family gathering can’t begin to describe the unpredictable, emotional experience of this magical drama that’s equal parts merriment and melancholy.

I don’t love A Christmas Tale, Arnaud Desplechin’s neo-New Wave family reunion—Deneuve and Mastroianni, Amalric and Devos—because it captures the feeling of being with your loved ones around the holidays. It’s so much better, so much worse than that…This isn’t family, but rather, as someone says, “myth.” It’s at once resonant for this most hectic, reflective time of year, and so much bigger, brighter, bolder than life—in other words, pure cinema.

What an obscene, grotesque film this is ([jury member] Hamé said, straight after, that he needed a good shot of gangsta rap to blast this filthy experience out of his system): single-mindedly devoted to exploiting and manipulating every viewer’s queasy feelings about grave illness and impending death, and appending that whole contrived, hyper-busy dance to some tidy thesis about grieving for an absent brother.
