The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS FILM - TB

Di­rected by Saul Dibb. Star­ring Michelle Wil­liams, Kristin Scott Thomas, Matthias Schoe­naerts, Sam Ri­ley, Lam­bert Wil­son, Ruth Wil­son,Mar­got Rob­bie Ev­ery sec­ond World War cliché is here: the un­hap­pily mar­ried young hero­ine (Wil­liams), her dra­co­nian mother-in-law (Scott Thomas), the dash­ing Ger­man com­poser turned of­fi­cer (Schoe­naerts) who takes up res­i­dence in their wellap­pointed home and em­barks on a ditzy love af­fair with the mis­er­able fe­male lead. Irène Némirovsky’s ad­mired novel has not got the adap­ta­tion it de­served. In­deed, to de­scribe the cen­tral ro­mance as Mills and Boon cheap­ens that imprint’s worth. 15A cert, gen re­lease, 107 min
