      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Memoir of War benefits from a magnetic performance by Mélanie Thierry, whose work is often enough to counter some of the film's fundamental flaws.

      Tara Brady Irish Times La Douleur? Oui. Et les longueurs! Rated: 2/5 May 28, 2019 Full Review Cath Clarke Guardian Duras's soul-stripping words are here, but little thought appears to have gone into translating them for cinema. Rated: 2/5 May 22, 2019 Full Review David Jenkins Little White Lies Buoyed by an astonishing central turn by Mélanie Thierry. Rated: 3/5 May 22, 2019 Full Review Betsy Bozdech AWFJ.org Featuring a gripping, emotional performance from star Melanie Thierry as Marguerite Duras, Emmanuel Finkiel's adaptation of Duras' semi-autobiographical WWII novel is intense and haunting. Oct 11, 2021 Full Review Jennifer Merin AWFJ.org The film is an admirable adaptation. Women have great stories to tell on screen.

      Audience Member I want to see that movie Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/01/19 Full Review Audience Member This is not a movie where you sit back and eat popcorn. It really is painful, not only for the story line but as the movie goer. When we look back in history, a year doesn't seem so long but when you are waiting for someone to return from a war prison, it truly is forever. This movie portrays the decline that happens over time as one waits in hope and fear. War is just bad and this is another example of the many lives that get destroyed, not only the victims. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Read all reviews
