Aro Recommended À Nos Amours

 

aka: To Our Loves
France 1983, 102 minutes
Dir. Maurice Pialat
In French with English subtitles
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Drama / Youth, Sex

Topics: Rites-of-passage.

 

Aroview: One of dir. Pialat's most satisfying dramas, this concerns a journey of a teenage girl (Bonnaire, in a stunning debut) when her family life turns disappointing, violent and fragmented.

Engaging in a string of flirtations and sexual affairs, Bonnaire eventually escapes into a quickie marriage, while retaining a powerful, live-wire bond with her imposing father, played by Pialat himself in an electrifying performance. Emotionally touching, this has a certain humanist warmth and intensity which has seen it much praised by critics.
