Fifth about The Seventh

Le Brio

Le Brio: Yvan Attal tackles a very contemporary issue with a pleasant, powerful film, centered around two very good performances; Daniel Auteuil is very good as the equal-opportunity, complex offender and provocateur, while Camélia Jordana displays great ferocity, intelligence and energy as the offended. The film doesn’t provide easy answers, but does provide some beautifully written and passionately delivered arguments by both characters; the dialogue is mildly erudite, but never tiresome. Cinematographer Rémy Chevrin captures the locations in Paris well, and manages a few very beautiful shots. Michael Brook’s beautiful musical score is very present and effective element of the heart-tugging.
