| Two ships passing in the night
"Brief Crossing" is all about a 30 something woman and a 16 year old boy who meet during a ferry journey across the English channel. As the ferry takes us from La Havre to Portsmouth, the characters meet, shop, drink, dance, have sex, and ultimately part at their destination. Superficially, "Brief Crossing" is not much of a film. It has marginal production value, a cast of two, and a meager story. However, as a relationship film it is finely nuanced with a very natural ebb and flow of conversation, body language, evinced emotion, and human interaction. Not for everyone, this worthy addition to auteur Breillat's resume will be most appreciated by French film devotees. (B-)
