Talk about others to better forget one's own emptiness
30 August 2019 | by FrenchEddieFelsonSee all my reviews

Abandoned by a 17-year-old unmarried mother, Claire (Karin Viard) became the host of a famous talk show. Nevertheless, all her (tiny!) entourage find her distant and hardly fulfilled: she ostensibly avoids the company of people. In fact, she suffers. Internally and intensely. Her behavior is close to a permanent self-penitence with quite sad habits: she sleeps in her closet, probably to better isolate herself from the 'noise' and be alone with the memory of her mother. With all the frustration that can be imagined, until a private detective finds the trace of her mother ...

Excellent actress game. Karin Viard is perfect, although sometimes excessive And this is the first film directed by Pierre Pinaud: one thumb up! 6/7 of 10.
