Diving ★★★★½

Mélanie Laurent's artistic vision is delicious. Love is captured so sexily and sweetly like a fine ice wine; like a bitter dark chocolate once it crumbles before our eyes. There's a serious effort to make this story about star-crossed lovers stand out, and Mélanie succeeds in a beautiful, visceral way.  

Plonger was a big surprise and of all my festival selections so far, it moved me the most. Mélanie is an angel and had a great conversation with the audience after the film. Wish more people attended the premiere - please give this movie a chance!
