      Audience Member Rather dour take focusing on the tragedy of the Bronte family supported by very touching performances by the cast Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member 7.5/10, my review: Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member This documentary is far better than the film it documents. Though, I'm not sure that is saying much... Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member A tragically overlooked cinematic gem. If only this film were easier to acquire outside of France. The costumes, sets, actors, cinematography, and script all helped to paint a very historically accurate and ultimately respectful portrait of the lives of the tragic Brontë family. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Un drôle de Téchiné (une commande peut être?), biopic tragique sur les soeurs brontë et leur frère, sur leurs rêves et leur attachement à la landes anglaises. Bizarrement la littérature n'est pas centrale au film, les rapports complexes de la fratrie Adjani (Emily), Pisier (Charlotte), Huppert (Ann), Greggory (Branwell) sont explorés mais avec maniérisme. Bof. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member While watching Les soeurs Brontë, my sentiments migrated from “very good” to “excellent” to “this is Brontë the way Brontë should be”. I couldn’t think of any other way to give an accurate account of the lives and emotional developments of the Brontë sisters and their brother Branwell than André Téchiné did in this captivating costume drama. Everything you’re hoping for is there: the biographical info is correct and to the point, the relationship of Branwell with his sisters (especially with Emily – great typecasting by the way!) is well expressed, you can just sense the way in which the Brontës were constantly torn between their home and the outside world, the latter always drawing the shortest straw in the end. I was happy with the ending in which not Charlotte’s death, but an earlier conversation between the sisters was used to illustrate a vital point: (sibling) friendship will always defeat the disappointments of so-called love and is therefore much more valuable in the long run. For the rest, compliments are in order with regard to the way the beautiful rugged landscape of Yorkshire was filmed. The same thing goes for the portrayal of the Brontë’s emotions in some particular instances, like the terrible atmosphere in the Robinson’s household, where both Anne and Branwell must have felt miserable under the given circumstances, and Charlotte’s internal torment when she hungered for Monsieur Hager and his letters that never came. Normally one would expect the British to sweep away any foreign competition when it comes to costume drama adaptations of British literary works and biographies, but Les soeurs Brontë has shown that this ain’t necessarily the case.
