Mia Hansen-Løve directs Paul Blain, Constance Rousseau and Marie-Christine Friedrich in this French drama following a young girl’s estrangement from her father witnessed at 6 years old and then again at 18.
A competently and sensitively made debut. Hansen-Love keeps a certain detachment from the otherwise intimate scenes. I know I enjoyed watching this in the moment but very little has stayed with me only a little later.
