Leaving (Partir)

Rated NR 85 min. 2010

Kristin Scott Thomas is not only one of the finest character actors in the English language, but in the French as well. Witness this deceptively simple, dangerously sexy tale of the amour fou between a comfortable housewife (Scott Thomas) from Nîmes in the South of France, and the Spanish immigrant ex-con construction worker (Sergi Lopez) hired to remodel her property. “You’re like a bitch in heat!” shouts her wounded spouse (Yvan Attal). That’s not the half of it. One of the remarkable Scott Thomas’ most intense roles, and a complete triumph for her as well as for co-writer (with Gaëlle Macé) and director Catherine Corsini. Note the recycled music scores from Truffaut films by composers Georges Delerue and Antoine Duhamel. Crazy, baby. (85 min.)
