A quirky tale of a woman's sexual reawakening
20 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

Both my wife and I gave this film three stars out of five when we saw it last night at filmfestdc. We might have enjoyed it more had it been described more accurately: though it has a few humorous moments, mostly near the beginning, it is _not_ a comedy. For us, the best things about it were the beautiful lead actress, whose face was evocative and touching, and the depiction of rural French life.

One correction of a previous IMDb review: there _is_ a very brief sex scene (just a few seconds, though preceded by a somewhat longer scene of oral and physical foreplay). I would also disagree that the movie is "about necrophilia," though certainly that plays a major role in the plot. And though the main character is definitely buttoned-up--the arc of the movie is about her becoming unbuttoned, so to speak--I don't think she should be called prudish; a prude would not have tolerated Pattie's stories of her sexual escapades. Sorry for the quibbles, but after last night, I want to see the film described as accurately as possible!
