VAL­LEY OF LOVE ★★★

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

Di­rected by Guil­laume Ni­cloux. Star­ring Ger­ard Depar­dieu,

Is­abel Hup­pert Hup­pert and Depar­dieu come to­gether for the first time in 35 years to play an es­tranged cou­ple re­unit­ing fol­low­ing the death of their son. The two veter­ans form a lovely, com­ple­men­tary part­ner­ship. Depar­dieu re­moves his top to of­fer comic re­lief at ev­ery op­por­tu­nity. Hup­pert pinches her face and ex­er­cises that gut­tural rasp with a com­pelling blend of anger and re­gret. What a shame the script is so jammed with sen­ti­men­tal, New-Age baloney.
