Let the Sunshine In (15)
BORDERLINES FILM FESTIVAL 2018
Juliette Binoche’s Isabelle is in love with love. She’s an artist with a backlog of unsatisfactory affairs – an insufferable banker, a capricious actor and an ex-husband who has watched too much porn – but who is unable to stop looking for ‘the right one’. Allegedly inspired by Roland Barthes’ A Lover’s Discourse, Claire Denis injects a robust vein of cynical humour into this witty, sophisticated excursion. Binoche, beguiling and infuriating by turn, sparkles in a sexually charged role as a woman seeking signposts to life – from the lyrics of Etta James’ ‘At Last’ to Gérard Depardieu’s blatantly spurious tarot card reader.
