Critic Reviews for A Woman's Life (Une vie)
What saves this from being a dull downer is the lightness of touch in the direction and performances, the spontaneity of the dialogue as characters discuss dress designs or household expenditure.
A respectful adaptation, yet one that fails to translate the intensity of Maupassant's writing.
The director Stéphane Brizé does some lovely work with non-chronological flashbacks and flash-forwards, but the deadening sense that we know exactly where this is going (hint: not up) is never quite undone.
It doesn't make for cheerful viewing but, in its own downbeat way, A Woman's Life makes absorbing filmmaking.
It's marvellously done, with mournful aquatint colours, spare music (on what sounds like a spinet) and elliptical tableaux that keep you creatively guessing.
