Mademoiselle Chambon Review


Good
This French marital drama may feel elusive and slight, but it's extremely well observed, beautifully shot and acted with raw honesty. And virtually the entire plot takes place on an emotional level.

Thomas is the muscle. Meanwhile, his life is a shambles -- his ailing father (Niels Arestrup) can't get the Russian mafia to pay him the money he's owed, but he's marrying a "glorified prostitute" anyway. Fabrice, meanwhile, is cheating in his lovely wife (an unforgettable Aure Atika), and eventually Thomas fills in for him.
