A Thousand Times Good Night ★★★

Juliette Binoche is excellent, as usual, playing Rebecca...fearless war photographer on assignment in Afghanistan, mother of two young daughters and wife (apparently in that priority of importance to her.) Despite the film's accurate representation of such horrors of war as child suicide bombers, this is a melodrama about the collateral damage done to the family when the mother has a dangerous calling. Every aspect of the film making was immaculate if a tad overwrought at times. The film had important observations to impart about the corrosive affects of terror. However, rarely have I felt more repelled by the subject matter of a film, as the script overloaded the dice against Rebecca in her struggle to balance career and family.
