THE TRUTH (2019)

REVIEWS The Truth - A well-intentioned trip down a well-worn path

Starring Catherine Deneuve, Chiara Mastroianni, Alice Taglioni, Olivier Rabourdin, Samir Guesmi, Johan Leysen and Laure Calamy. Directed by Julie Bertuccelli.

On the first day of summer, reclusive millionaire Claire lays all of her worldly objects out on the front lawn of her mansion, impulsively determined to sell everything. As a horde of curious bystanders and opportunistic neighbours fight over the ridiculously underpriced antiques, each object stirs vivid memories for Claire of her flamboyant life. But soon, her long- estranged daughter Marie arrives, determined to stop these proceedings by any means.

REVIEWS Claire Darling - A French film fail

Starring Catherine Frot, Catherine Deneuve, Olivier Gourmet, Quentin Dolmaire, Mylène Demongeot, Marie Paquim, Karidja Touré, Pauline Étienne, Audrey Dana and Pauline Parigot. Directed by Martin Provost.

Gifted midwife Claire has led a quiet, focused life, dedicated to her profession and to the raising of her son as a single mother. But change is in the air; the local community maternity ward where she has worked for decades is to be closed, and though she has a job offer from a larger corporate clinic, struggles to reconcile their more efficiency-driven methods with her own.

In the midst of this upheaval, she receives a call from Béatrice, the extravagant mistress of her deceased father, who wants to meet again, thirty years after having disappeared without a trace. Béatrice is a true free-spirit – loud, vivacious, and seemingly without guilt. Claire agrees to meet, but is decidedly less than enthusiastic about delving into the secrets of the past, let alone prepared to respond to a plea for help...

Starring Catherine Deneuve, Oulaya Amamra, Kamel Labroudi, Kacey Mottet Klein and Stéphane Bak. Directed by André Téchiné.
Starring Pili Groyne, Benoît Poelvoorde, Yolande Moreau, Catherine Deneuve, François Damiens, Serge Larivière, Didier De Neck, Laura Verlinden, Romain Gelin and Marco Lorenzini. Directed by Jaco Van Dormael.

REVIEWS The Brand New Testament - What if God was one of us?

Starring Catherine Deneuve, Chiara Mastroianni - Vera, Louis Garrel - Clément, Ludivine Sagnier - Madeleine, Milos Forman - Older Jaromil and Paul Schneider - Henderson. Directed by Christophe Honoré.

In Paris, 1964, carefree young Madeleine steals a gorgeous pair of Roger Viviers from the shoe store where she works, and whilst wearing her sexy spike heels is mistaken for a prostitute — an error that signals the next direction her life will take. But there’s a further radical turn when she falls for and marries a suave Czech doctor Jaromil, leaving Paris for Prague – and then his infidelities and the arrival of Russian tanks in the city in 1968 lead her back home.
