Suzanne-Katell Quillevéré has succeeded in showing the true value of family. It is one of the best French films made in recent times.
11 January 2014 | by FilmCriticLalitRaoSee all my reviews

Time and again French cinema has made it loud and clear that family is a sacred institution which must not be harmed at any cost. This is the reason why several films based on the theme of family life continue to be made in good numbers in France. Although director Katell Quillevéré's second film is about a girl Suzanne, it is her father Nicolas who is the "real hero" of the film for a lot of sacrifices are made by him. He is the one who sees all the transformations which have taken place in the life of his daughter Suzanne. It is Nicolas who has always been there for Suzanne despite his professional limitations as a truck driver. Belgian actor François Damiens shines in this role as his performance is so rich, natural and incredibly real that one cannot help feeling that in real life too he might be a real father with real children. It is with a lot of subtlety that Katell Quillevéré drives home the message that a family cannot do much for one of its members if wrong personal or professional choices are made. Lastly Suzanne is one of the best French films made in recent times for which if viewers wish to shed some tears of sadness then it must be for Nicolas who plays two important roles for his daughters : a father as well as a mother.
