Yes, my French marathon at this year's festival continued by watching my beloved Mr. Canet's movie "Les Petits Mouchoirs".
Before I go any further, may I say something? Does Marion Cotillard even know how NOT to act well? Indeed, she showed her marvelous talent by performing beautifully in this absolutely appealing drama.
The movie starts with a shocking scene, followed by an annual reunion vacation of a group of friends with many different personalities. Their individual characters (one happily married, one single but confused, one struggling with a past relationship, etc.), their ties of loyalty, the dialogues between them, and their convictions not only make you feel you are part of them, but also urges you to continuously watch them in wonderment - despite the fact that some reviews criticized the length of the movie.
"Les Petits Mouchoirs" made me laugh, made me cry, made me feel lovely and in love with each and every character.
