Mood Indigo (2013)

Like Terry Gilliam and Andy Kaufman, Michel Gondry is one of those filmmakers whose style is so ‘out there’, it can be hard to enjoy their work amidst the chaos on-screen.  Even though Gondry’s trademark eccentricity won hearts in Eternal…

Mood Indigo (2013)

Michel Gondry is out of control in Mood Indigo. And that is both a good and a bad thing. It does feel against my every natural inclination to criticise Gondry and his work. Originality and imagination of this magnitude is such a rare and…

Thérèse Desqueyroux (2012)

Marriage trap Stephen Dalton of Hollywoor Reporter wrote, Miller's "swansong feature has the glossy, well-dressed, slightly staid feel of a middlebrow TV miniseries. But it still packs enough dramatic weight and literary pedigree to make…

Beautiful Lies (2010)

In Beautiful Lies, Audrey Tautou plays Emilie (an homage to Amelie, or just a coincidence?).  She is a hairdresser with her own business, which she co-owns with her friend Sylvia.  Jean (Bouajila) is the unassuming handy man for the salon,…

Beautiful Lies (2010)

Beautiful Lies once again reunites Audrey Tautou with director Pierre Salvadori (Priceless) for what on the surface appears to be another slice of delightfully whimsical French comedy - but which unfortunately hides a dark secret! Thirty…

Amélie (2001)

Amélie (original French title: Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain "The Fabulous Destiny of Amélie Poulain") is a fun and beautiful film which follows the journey of Amélie Poulain (Audrey Tautou) from a life of anxious isolation, to that…
