  There are not many actresses that the balancing act between opulent Kinokost from Hollywood and small, mainly French auteur films dominate such virtuosity as always elegant Kristin Scott Thomas. After blockbusters like Mission: Impossible, The English Patient, and many other films, she was recently in Zabou Breitmann So many years I love you as a murderer released from prison to see and now appears again in a French film that so far, at least in his homeland has been talked about. Also in Catherine Corsini The affair / Partir it comes to molting and lives that are changing radically, to cuts and existential question of what can cause a life with. Suzanne (Kristin Scott Thomas) is beginning to mid-forties and leads with her husband Samuel (Yvan Attal) and two nearly grown children a secure, peaceful and comfortable life in southern France. After the education of the young is almost complete, the trained physiotherapist will resume their work and defies her Arztehemann approval from a crop on the land where it intends to consolidate their practice. For the upcoming construction work, coming from Spain Ivan ex-con (Sergi Lopez is engaged). At first glance, the woman of good family links and the father of a young daughter little in common. And yet they come together, and start having an affair and make it public even to Suzanne’s husband. He is shocked and can not understand his wife that chooses for its passion and moves in with Ivan. But then Samuel is threatening to turn off the tap her. In this way he wants to force his wife to return to him. Suzanne, however, is very decided in her new fortune not to be take away. And for that she is ready for anything. What remains of this film in mind, besides the history and the excellent actors Kristin Scott Thomas and Sergi Lopez, above all the light that the very simple story of unconditional love despite all the gloom in a summer-bright , sometimes almost blinding light appears. What is really new is the story about unconditional love for all social and private resistors not though. Thanks Catherine Corsini usually cautious, however, directed the affair comes to a remarkable film that works in the foreground next to his love story primarily as a portrait of a woman who comes her way with admirable consistency. Maybe because she knows that love, especially the unexpected, irrational and actually hopeless, a precious commodity, is that one must take when it knocks at your own door. No matter what it may. The radical nature of passion, it is also clear in the one hand, beautiful, but also tried some final image that shows how far Ivan and Suzanne are ready to go. Despite all the sadness that this is leaving a bitter end for us: not better, such a crazy love, to savor such an “amour fou” against all odds, instead hinterherzutrauern a lifetime missed opportunity like this? , Even if Catherine Corsini can miss in her film, sometimes a little of the unconditional its two main characters: Your film An Affair / Partir is a classic example of love tragedies à la francaise.
