I've Loved You So Long


I've Loved You So Long
This character study looks at the nature of crime and forgiveness. After spending fifteen years in jail, a woman is released and comes to live with her sister's family. There is obviously some tension due to her presence, and as she tries to reintergrate into society, we get to know her. Details of why she went to prison emerge slowly, leaving the viewer with mixed emotions about how to react to the character further. In French with English subtitles.

James Berardinelli quote iconI've Loved You So Long is the kind of film that will bore to tears those who do not enjoy simple, unforced character dramas. The movie's action largely takes place beneath the skin. The pace is slow but not glacial, yet Claudel demands patience. Ultimately, I've Loved You So Long is uplifting, although one might not expect that from the thematic material. The production rewards viewers who roll with the shifting tones, explore the mystery of Juliette's past alongside Lea, and stay to the end.
