FOR A WOMAN

  • Feb 15, 2014 · 2:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

After her mother’s death, Anne (Sylvie Testud) discovers old photos and letters that convince her to take a closer look at the life of her parents, Michael and Léna (Benoît Magimel and Mélanie Thierry). She learns that the young couple met in the concentration camps during World War II, later moving to France to start their new life together. Soon, Anne’s research into their Jewish history and their ties to Lyon’s communist party reveals the existence of a mysterious uncle, Jean (Nicolas Duvauchelle), whom everyone seems intent on forgetting entirely. As she gradually closes in on the discovery she didn’t know she was looking for, her father grows ever more ill, and may take the secret that kept them apart for so long to his grave. In a journey that stretches from post-war France to the 1980s, Anne’s search intertwines with her father’s past until they form a single story.

    Wonderful film on many levels. I certainly got caught up in the story, a father's tale slowly revealed through various events, but I also found an underlying sensuous and rich experience revealed through beautiful cinematography, art direction, locations and a lot of attention to fine detail.
