A Tale of Love and Darkness

A Tale of Love and Darkness ★★★½

“It’s better to be sensitive, than to be honest”

Melodramatic, Heart Wrenching, and Muted all at once. It’s very clear that this was Natalie’s directoral debut, but it shows tremendous potential. The story gets pretty clunky right before the final act of the film, but when it comes back around it’s a brute punch in the stomach that has the full potential to leave you full of emotion. Portman, as always, shines brightly in this film as the lead role. I couldn’t keep my eyes off her. And not just because I was reading the subtitles.
