Critical Review (with download link) by Mr. Michael Rizzo Chessman - Gabrielle (2005) Isabelle Huppert
si vis amari, ama!
Yiou have to be capable of being loving yourself - if you wish to be loved!
(2005) Isabelle Huppert
This is a movie from France
starring Isabelle Huppert (White material) who is married to a man who tells us
at the very beginning that he always felt love was a "bother" to him as a
concept of anything he would personally have felt the need to personally
experience or be involved with. But he says apparently as he has been told "all
men do fall in love" so perhaps this is so for him too in regards to his wife
(Isabelle Huppert) somehow therefore.
He speaks to her in rather negative fashion and seems to berate her perhaps even
same underlying mindset too no doubt as does Torvald in speaking to Nora in the
Norwegian version of "A Dolls House" (Et Dukkehjem in Norwegian - 1973)
There is some interesting banter amongst their dinner guests who seem to be
to come up with some or other pearl of wisdom perhaps in what are human affairs
from one extreme to the other in range of topic from moment to moment it would
By the end of the movie he decides he cannot accept a situation where he is
to a woman as beautiful as Isabelle Huppert is by comparison to his own appeal
in a situation where she confesses that she does in fact not love him - and is
to live on with him with that truth told, nonetheless. He leaves and according
to the text
on the screen, "Never is to return" to her.
