DNA: grief is easily relatable, but that doesn’t make portraying and delving into it any easier; Maïwenn’s modest family drama makes a valiant attempt, but ultimately the whole picture is not explored enough. The mildly dysfunctional family, which has its cracks exposed as the minutiae of a funeral are discussed, feels particularly in need of more attention. Acting is generally low-key, in spite of a number of emotionally charged scenes, but nevertheless efficient. Maïwenn herself, as the protagonist who finds herself at the beginning of a journey as she loses her life’s anchor, gets the most time. Fanny Ardant and Louis Garrel, as her mother and cousin, make the most out of their limited screentime. The film has a modest look, appropriate for the story.
