Ozon is often at his best when working with women, and he has a fabulous talent in Paula Beer to bring his protagonist, Anna, to vivid life. She’s stunning in the role.
Ozon tends to favour a twisty narrative, and again offers a juicy one here that makes further plot description impossible.
Nigel M Smith / The Guardian
This is the tale of a young Frenchman just after WWI, traveling to Germany to meet the parents and fiancée of a fallen soldier whom he says he knew in Paris, and it offers considerable emotional scope for Ozon’s pet themes, including the bounds of friendship and the idea of women coming into their own.
Jay Weissberg / Variety
Ozon has crafted a haunting but hopeful portrait of how forgiveness can ease pain and love can overcome the heaviest of burdens. It’s affectionate and melodramatic, musing on the things we lose in war and the futility of it all.
