Mademoiselle Chambon

Rated NR 101 min. 2010



Madamoiselle Chambon is a portrait of lives of quiet desperation: Jean, a provincial carpenter—and husband and father—and his relationship with Véronique, his son's schoolteacher. Jean is an almost idealized portrait of a humble, taciturn tradesman who chafes at his life's ordinariness and anonymity, while we learn that Véronique is a failed classical violinist who seems to be something of a disappointment to her family. There's not much here that's new, but if nothing else, Stéphane Brizé's low-key drama demonstrates that the French, too, have would-be lovers who suffer quietly through emotional and sexual repression.
