Trivia

'Le Passage du Gois' is a sandbank which connects the island of Noirmoutier to mainland France. It has been sealed and converted into a road (4.5 km long) that is covered twice a day at high tide. There is an alternative route via a bridge (built in 1971) at the southern tip of the island. See more »

Maybe the problem is the story
31 May 2016 | by bob998See all my reviews

It starts off very effectively; a car containing two people who are bickering loudly goes off the road, and both are injured. The reasons for the argument are brought out during the film. I had no concerns about the acting since Laurent Lafitte, Melanie Laurent and Audrey Dana handle their roles very well. Especially Melanie Laurent who can make the most banal, trite story seem like a masterpiece.

My problem was with the story which seemed old-fashioned: one character is positively Victorian in her moral judgements while another seems badly out of tune with the France of 2016. If you're going to make a film that feels like a Simenon tale, it's better to set it in the 1950's, let's say, so that characters and actions can mesh better. With this reservation noted, I want to finish by saying that this film is well worth your attention. I gave it 8/10.
