HK Summer IFF 2010: Partir (Leaving)

Leaving (Partir)

Dir: Catherine Corsini | France | 2009
Colour | 85min
Cast: Kristin Scott Thomas, Yvan Attal, Sergi Lopez

After reinventing herself as a French thespian in the acclaimed I’ve Loved You So Long, Kristin Scott Thomas once again mesmerizes as a woman who leaves her marriage for another man. It’s a classic Lady Chatterley plot, but imbued with genuine emotions and convincing psychological fortitude. Suzanne (Thomas) lives a bourgeois existence with her physician husband Samuel (Yvan Attal) for over twenty years, until the day she meets handyman Ivan (Sergi Lopez). Catherine Corsini’s direction keep things unpredictable even as the jealously and passion build to a boiling point.

2009 Toronto, London, Seattle International Film Festival
