Sad film :/

Such a beautiful movie -- and so cold, too.

Well made immigrant drama that is probably a bit too unpatriotic to be starting in the award season (and hence got moved to 2014 I guess). I never thought I would say that but Cotillard's presence (and she doesn't even have to act) is maybe a bit too strong for the character she is portraying and I could have done with a less dramatic resolution to the lover's quarrel. To be a great movie the whole thing would have needed a bit more emotional punch. Still, the story gets told which was was Gray's main intent and the ending shot looked great.
