      MaryBeth G This film determined the course of my life when I saw it at age 17. At the end of the film, weeping and heartbroken, I decided that I would become a child psychotherapist and I pursued that career until I retired in 2022. I found it unbearably evocative and my heart broke for the suffering of the protagonist, a young boy who hungered for love from his unavailable parents. I am searching for a way to view this remarkable film again. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Marguerite Duras' film is the very definition of an art house film: brooding, indifferent and enigmatic. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Lento demais, embora a história pareça necessitar disso. O drama da mulher que necessita mais do que um 'affair', porà (C)m seu amante não lhe dá mais que migalhas. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
