BOTH SIDES OF THE BLADE
aka FIRE (2022) [AVEC AMOUR ET ACHARNEMENT]
Legendary French filmmaker Claire Denis delivers an understated yet psychologically vivid romantic drama, co-written with her LET THE SUNSHINE IN collaborator Christine Angot. On her way to work one day, Sara (Denis regular Juliette Binoche) spies her ex-lover François (Grégoire Colin) outside of the metro; shortly thereafter, by a seeming coincidence, François gets in touch with Jean (Vincent Lindon), his old friend — and Sara's husband — to propose they go into business together. François' unexpected reemergence in their lives, and the emotional destabilization that comes with it, propels this finely wrought and melancholic narrative, with Denis' characteristic knack for capturing the intimate sensuality of everyday life on full display, bolstered by a typically gorgeous score from regular collaborators Tindersticks. (Note courtesy of Film at Lincoln Center.) DIR/SCR Claire Denis; SCR Christine Angot, from her novel "Un tournant de la vie;" PROD Olivier Delbosc. France, 2022, color, 116 min. In French with English subtitles. NOT RATED
