Joanne Laurier World Socialist Web Site Lady Jane is a further step backward for French filmmaker Robert Guédiguian. His skepticism that social ills can be addressed seems to have reached a critical point, giving way to a serious cynicism.

Audience Member Bon film noir de gangsters à la papa. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member 3 anciens comparses de cambriolage se retrouvent apres qqs annees d'activite rangee quand le fils de madame se fait enlever contre rancon. D'ou le retour aux vieilles activites pour reunir la somme demandee. Des passions et des rancoeurs vont ressurgir, avec qqs flashbacks explicatifs quant a leur separation. Qui a enleve le jeune garcon, et surtout pourquoi? L'intrigue du film est interessante, mais on n'arrive pas a eprouver une quelconque sympathie pour les 3 personnages. On se fait emmener, tres lentement, vers les reponses a nos questions, en assistant a des situations personnelles dont on se serait bien passees tellement elles n'apportent rien au film. Trop long et manque de rythme flagrant... Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member This French crime drama begins promising but lacks enough strength in the development of its premise, as it simply comes down to an ordinary message about revenge leading to more revenge, but still the plot has a good atmosphere of mystery and some nice twists. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Simple, but gives you some joy. A low-budget french thriller. Limited, but I liked it. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Le plus mauvais Guediguian... Pas un genre pour lui, le noir... Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member I should have to say I felt quite disappointed after watching it. The storyline is good and thus I would expect it to be much better than the final product I watched. What really the leading actress felt? What kind of emotion driving her to such an end? How deep is her love to he dad and son? What's the meaning of revenge? There's always at least a reason for a human being to do something, at least, no reason is a good reason. This is my wrong choice in HKIFF 2009 anyway. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Read all reviews
