Telling the story of Ismael, a filmmaker preparing his new feature, whose life is turned upside down when his wife (Marion Cotillard), missing and presumed dead for twenty years, mysteriously returns. His girlfriend (Charlotte Gainsbourg) attempts to help Ismael retain his sanity as his personal and professional life spins out of control.
I chose this movie to see Marion Cotillard again for she has been brilliant in other films. This one....flat. It was like watching dreams filmed. Disjointed, at times interesting and times just bewildering. Marion Cotillard’s role was just to look either sad or silly. There were some very interesting moments and had the film been edited down to just over an hour it might have been good.
