Obviously this film divides opinions and I can't help but side with those who found it rather dull and certainly repetitive. The story is a simple one, and the linearly shot interactions with her (Marion Cotillard's) fellow workers are 2-dimensional simply because we have no idea of the history of her relationships with any of them. Pointing a camera at a stressed-out Cotillard (or at the back of her neck) and following her around rather dull housing estates to knock on a few doors does not a fine film make. This is cinema verite that doesn't reveal any hidden truths.
