FROM THE LAND OF THE MOON/MAL DE PIERRES ★★★

Di­rected by Ni­cole Gar­cia. Star­ring Mar­ion Cotil­lard, Louis Gar­rel, Alex Bren­demühl

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

Nicely made, of­ten rather silly melo­drama fea­tur­ing Cotil­lard as an un­sta­ble women who cre­ates ro­man­tic havoc after be­ing com­pelled to wed the wrong man. It is pretty and well ap­pointed. It has ev­ery chance of play­ing well with those who equate “French” with “qual­ity”. But it slips from the mind as soon as it ends. Still, it is worth en­dur­ing to gawp at the lu­di­crous twist in the tale. I ver­ily dropped my pince nes. 16 cert, IFI, Dublin, 120 min
