There are a lot of really fascinating scenes in this film, really wonderful moments. But toward the end, the air lets out and I couldn’t stay all that interested. When Claire Denis is firing on all the thrusters, her examinations of triviality are among the best out there. But this is an easy bubble to burst. This is a good one to catch on TV. If you miss the beginning or have to leave before the end, it is nothing to lose sleep over. I will include no synopsis with this review – I can’t say the story is interesting at all; the only thing worth discussing is the acting and the gestalt of particular observation.
