Critic Reviews for The Truth (La vérité)
The Truth, like so much of Kore-eda's work, is fundamentally minor; it has one of those slightly maudlin piano scores that he favors, much too blatantly announcing the wistfulness.
Foreign auteurs often go astray as they make their way to the West, and it's a relief that Kore-eda's approach to delicate family dynamics spans the language barrier, though hardly a surprise.
This wise and diaphanous little drama finds Kore-eda once again exploring his usual obsessions...yet another insightful look at the underlying fabric of a modern family.
One of Deneuve's greatest performances, with Kore-eda transforming the magisterial persona she frequently supplies to other directors into something more complex, tragic and yet defiant. She deserves awards for it. And so does the film.
Even working in another language and on another continent, Kore-eda once again captures the intricacies of the human condition.
