Critic Reviews for Alice
Movie premises don't come much more French than this... Regardless, this is a very cunningly handled first feature, maintaining a matter-of-fact, sometimes comic tone rather than venturing too far into erotic daydream.
The writer-director's first feature has much going for it, above all a striking performance by Emilie Piponnier in the title role.
It's rare to see a minor-key drama that doesn't overextend the nature of the material, and rarer still for cinema to dig this deep into the female psyche without boxing it in.
Mackerras raises some interesting ideas about the different ways men and women are perceived and treated by society, either through the legal system or even by their own blood.
A truly remarkable exploration of identity, and the strength required to rebuild a life.
