    I was consistently intrigued with this psychological thriller. Because the film deals with the questioning of a mother and son's identity, a mysterious air emanates from the proceedings almost immediately. Characters and objects are now and then photographed in distortion, the actors (Huppert is, of course, lovely and calmly amazing!) play each scene as if their characters are at once distraught with confusion and yet not at all phased by all the weirdness. (How French!) The camera creepily floats through…

    This "Comedy" is a continuation of Ruiz's interest in identity and the past. Around his 9th birthday a boy tells his mother Ariane (Isabelle Huppert) that he is really the son of Isabella (Jeanne Balibar) whose son drowned 2 years ago. Ruiz maintains a sense of mystery with some intriguing twists. The film is very well acted, particularly by Huppert as a woman whose life is falling apart and determined to find the truth. Balibar as the "new mother" gives her character a calm assurance.

    This is why I really hate psychoanalysis.

    This feels like it was made by an art-robot.

    I don't know... it's a clever idea, with many clever touches, and the leading ladies are both good as ever, but something about this movie just left me cold. Actually, I think it was literally everything else...
