Suite Franšaise Reviews

July 3, 2015
A sturdy enough but ultimately overpolite entry into the classic wartime women's melodrama, in which war's impact on the lonely heart is nearly as devastating as the havoc wreaked on limb and landscape.

What could be all-too-familiar here is mostly fresh and engaging, thanks to understated storytelling and a great cast.

As doomed wartime romances go, the film doesn't offer anything particularly original. But with palpable tension and poignancy, Suite Francaise is fine filmmaking well worth watching.

How are you with the old parleyvoo? Not so hot? Suite Franšaise, the latest movie about France under the Occupation, neither.

It's one of those pedigreed visions of love and war which backs away from specifics, reassuring us almost to death with its lavish craft. It's thoroughly easy to sit through, when it should probably have been harder.

Like a very solemn Stella Artois commercial, this is a golden-tinted saga of everyday French collaborating folk in the second world war.

When Hollywood adapts great literature into a movie, it is best not to expect too much, and merely feel thankful that anything has been salvaged. But the treatment that has befallen Suite Franšaise seems particularly harsh.

Suite Franšaise is handsomely made and boasts two exceptional central performances but its tone is strangely discordant.

Iffy scripting decisions can't thwart the romantic allure of this handsomely crafted, sincerely performed wartime weeper.
