Directing a successful film at the first attempt is not unlike writing a successful first novel; both successes are something of a two-edged sword because sooner or later - a notable exception is Harper Lee - you're going to have to offer your readers/viewers a second effort and it's not as easy to replicate let alone eclipse your debut as it is to fall on your face. Philippe Claudel managed a stunning debut with I've Loved You So Long and, perhaps wisely, turned to something completely different for his second feature but now he is back at his old stamping-ground with the same actress, Kristin Scott Thomas who was an integral part of the success of his first feature. Neither has he strayed too far in terms of plot; in the first film Scott Thomas was a doctor who'd been struck off the register and this time around she is married - happily initially - to a doctor, Daniel Auteuil, who has postponed his mid-life crisis until his early sixties. As in the first film there is lots more than the main story going on and Richard Berry as a psychiatrist friend - all three, Auteuil, Scott Thomas and Berry, had met on the same day 30 years earlier - weighs in with a solid, quietly brilliant performance. Eventually the plot strays into David Mamet territory and although it misses the quality of I've Loved You So Long by a whisker this is still a major film and really should be seen.
