Critic Reviews for Suite Française
A sturdy enough but ultimately overpolite entry into the classic wartime women's melodrama, in which war's impact on the lonely heart is nearly as devastating as the havoc wreaked on limb and landscape.
What could be all-too-familiar here is mostly fresh and engaging, thanks to understated storytelling and a great cast.
As doomed wartime romances go, the film doesn't offer anything particularly original. But with palpable tension and poignancy, Suite Francaise is fine filmmaking well worth watching.
In Nazi-occupied France, the bucolic yet class-riven life of the small town of Bussy is turned upside down by the arrival of refugees from Paris and jackbooted soldiers from Berlin.
How are you with the old parleyvoo? Not so hot? Suite Française, the latest movie about France under the Occupation, neither.
It's one of those pedigreed visions of love and war which backs away from specifics, reassuring us almost to death with its lavish craft. It's thoroughly easy to sit through, when it should probably have been harder.
Audience Reviews for Suite Française
A slight lack of focus is the one real flaw in this deftly acted and visually interesting true story (one I didn't know); Michelle Williams is fantastic as always
