I've seen it in october, in the theater. Really good low-key drama, with elements of detective story. Not joyful though, not at all, it's very gloomy, with lots of grey atmosphere, grey buildings, grey water, grey everything, even performances. And I'm saying that as a compliment, because it seems to have taken much hard work to get it to this state. Besides, as a morality statement, this movie appeals to me.
Adèle is very good in her role, and I like how the direction treats her. Total opposite of what she played in Water Lilies for instance.

Now that I think of it, the greyness of everything reminds me of Per Wahlöö's two novellas about commissionner Jensen.

THE UNKNOWN GIRL

I agree with what Owen and others have said. Bought the DVD slashed in price at HMV. It IS very low key - and very much in the Francophone tradition of film-making. The 'Sight & Sound' review did say 'Adele Haenal is mesmerising'. This is very true. Downside is that there is not one other strong character for her to play against - just a host of minor characters and conflict with every one of them. It is engaging as a medical 'whodunnit' and Adele is centre-stage (enough reason to watch it anyway :) ) A young doctor who makes an understandable error of judgment, and then atones by turning detective over a death of an anonymous immigrant that everyone else is more than happy to forget about. It is a tour-de-force for Adele as she is playing almost the total flipside of her amoral manipulative role in Naissance des Pieuvres. It would have been good if she had a strong female companion to play against - a sort of 'flipside' Marie if you can imagine such a thing. Anyway - one worth seeing as Adele matures as an actor. The relentless concrete drabness and thundering traffic noise of Liege in Belgium provides the perfect backdrop for Adele to shine through like a flower growing in a crack in the pavement - physically, intellectually and morally beautiful in an asshole anonymous corner of 'modern' Europe.

So much out in the public eye with her career, and so many good substantial roles too. *:)*

I must confess I quite fancy "Orpheline", but maybe that's just the thought of the two Adèles being together. :oops: :P :lol:

Adèle Haenel back at Cannes Film Festival: this time in triplicate!!!

ENCOUNTER Adèle Haenel confided in "20 Minutes" while defending three films in Cannes and presented "Le Suede" by Quentin Dupieux at the opening of the Directors' Fortnight

Adèle Haenel is not one to chew her words and she proves it against Jean Dujardin in Quentin Dupieux's Le Suede, which opens the Directors' Fortnight. The film is defended at the Cannes Film Festival, before going out in theaters on June 19th. Adèle Haenel plays a waitress dreaming of becoming a film editor in a delirium of fascination for a jacket. "The madness of Quentin Dupieux amuses me, says Adele Haenel at 20 Minutes . But I reworked my character to fit my feminist ideas. Snuggle women stuck between cooking and seduction. Gradually, her character is needed to become as crazy as the hero.

Never two without three
On the Croisette this year, the young woman is not at the end of her troubles because she presents two other films: Portrait of the girl on fire Céline Sciamma in competition and The heroes never die from Aude Léa Rapin (Critics' Week). "These are films that register differently in their funding and their position in the film landscape," says the actress. These three films testify to the versatility of the actress who loves new experiences while remaining faithful to Céline Sciamma who had directed her in Birth of Octopuses . " Portrait of the girl on fire testifies to the richness of our collaboration, insists Adele Haenel. But I also like to multiply the experiences, the styles and the ways of working. "

Cannes, this place of debate
Passionate about her job, Adèle Haenel carefully selects her projects. "I like the idea of ​​fighting clichés about women," says the actress. It is certain that this notion influences my choices. The Cannes Film Festival is a particularly dear place to her heart. "The filmmaking it generates is not just about movies, but also the passion of the debate of ideas," she says.

Hey Snapsie :W

snaps wrote:...Portrait of the girl on fire...

I've read nice things about this film as "Portrait of a Lady on Fire" https://variety.com/2019/film/reviews/portrait-of-a-lady-on-fire-review-1203220399/
I guess the translation sometimes throws up irregularities.
Hope I get the chance to see it.

Also great that Adèle and Céline are still together. 8)

Red carpet at Cannes 2019.
