Touching Performance from Birkin
La femme et le TGV (2016)

*** (out of 4)

Elise (Jane Birkin) is a lonely woman who lives alone in a small house that sets right by a TGV track. Each morning she follows the same routine by opening the window by the track and waving a flag. One day she receives a letter from someone on the train who appreciates her gesture and before long the two strike up a relationship.

LA FEMME ET LE TGV is one of the five Oscar-nominated short for Best Live Action. If you're a fan of watching these type of shorts then you should find this one to be rather entertaining, although it does run on a bit too long at thirty-minutes. With that said, for the most part there's a lot of heart and charm to be found in the picture and there's also an extremely good performance by Birkin. She's certainly very believable in the role and helps carry the picture with her touching performance.
