Another film with a badly-translated title, Nicole Garcia’s wartime drama was nominated for the Palme d’Or and several César awards, though it seems to me a competent drama as opposed to anything out of the ordinary. Marion Cotillard does some good work – as always – as an ill woman who is forced into a marriage of convenience before later falling in love with another man at a health spa. Not bad, but lacking in vim and passion. (**½)
