Storyline

Forty-something Pierre is serving a fourteen year prison sentence. His mother, who is approaching eighty, visits him every week. Suzanne, Pierre's current wife, has moved on since he was sent away. Each character gives us a frank account of a period in their lives that seems suspended in time by the fragile connection between life on the inside and the world outside. Their destinies are linked by crime, guilt and loneliness, and like casualties of love and desire, they are dying to stick their heads above the water and breathe the air of life.

I watched this at the Berlin Internationl Festival in February. The movie is very talk-y, as some would describe it. There are many aspects to it and some images (many actually) are not only nicely framed, but also beautifully shot. The main protagonist (ridden with guilt, though aren't we all to some degree) talks a lot. About life, about society, about guilt, about family and of course about the story within the movie (though this brings us back to guilt too).

There are a few different characters, but the speed this is moving is so slow, you'll either cherish it (for being able to digest the philosophical touches) or bored to death (no pun intended) because of it. The eye of the beholder. It didn't really impress me, but maybe I wasn't ready for it
