Jeanne (Emilie Dequenne) is a free spirited rollerblading Parisian young woman living at home with her widowed mother (Catherine Deneuve). Half-heartedly looking for a job she goes for an interview with her mother's old flame, Samuel Bleiston (Michel Blanc), now a world famous Jewish lawyer. Turned down because of secretarial inexperience the interview sets in motion a sequence of events that snowball into a huge political and national news story, having ramifications for all involved. As Jeanne decides to escape her mother's comfortable nest and sets up home with newfound love Franck (Nicolas Duvauchelle), an aspiring wrestler, she soon finds herself in more trouble. Alongside the film's political agenda, the film is fuelled by a fast burning romance.
Well acted characters in search of a plot
- The Girl on the Train review by DM
This film is very watchable in the earlier scenes as it is well filmed, well acted and the characters are interesting. All of the story lines seem to reach a dead end and disappear ,however, without any resolution and you're left wondering why most of the characters took part.
Ultimately a frustrating watch.
