Après Le Sud

Written and Directed by Jean-Jacques Jauffret.

I think I disliked this film mainly because of its reality and because it is excruciatingly minimal, dry and the simplest. Adèle Haenel is one of the four main characters, as each one of them cross paths some way or the other during an entire day of their lives. It is tragic, it truly is and there’s nothing the director/storyteller does about it because it is just the way their lives are meant to be, at least, according to his wishes.

Adele’s character it’s pretty much about the way she carries herself, it’s about the attitude represented in her eyes, in her walk, in her quiet brief responses, it’s about presence and for that Adele couldn’t be a better choice because she’s tremendously good. I only wished there was more, something more about this film.
