I saw this movie in French in our little movie theatre in Cotignac. This movie version of Irene Némirovsky's novel is very well-done. It stars Michelle Williams is at once timid and strong in the role of the daughter-in-law of a hard woman played masterfully by Kristin Scott Thomas, who's only son is at the front. The tension between the two women and their evolution makes for a good story. The filming is beautiful and the cast is strong. I give this four stars out of five.
