The trailer was classically misleading. I did not expect a pale remake of Providence (1977)
directed by Alain Resnais
In short: 1) Sibyl has a few undisclosed skeletons in the closet and manages them while drinking abusively. 2) Sibyl is a shrink and the border between her private life and her professional life does not exist. 3) Sibyl is a writer and she draws inspiration from her own surroundings. Thus, given these three points, fiction and reality are quickly confused, for Sibyl first and for the audience even more.
Although the actresses Sandra Hüller
and Adèle Exarchopoulos
are outstanding, this story of a lost woman suffering of emotional distress is globally boring.
