Critic Reviews for 1,000 Times Good Night
Binoche is impressive, bringing a steely, self-contained detachment to even the most intimate moments with her family. But Erik Poppe, the director, slathers the film in overly sentimental music choices
If I'm complaining about this movie a lot for one I'm deeming better than fair, it's because I was frustrated by how its first-rate ingredients, Binoche chief among them, somehow failed to create a spectacular end result.
Poppe registers Rebecca's moral commitment as well as the compulsive aspect of her dedication but the film oscillates between drama and statement; it becomes a series of set-pieces and what-ifs, particularly towards the end.
This potent Norwegian drama by Erik Poppe, himself a veteran war photographer, opens with a gripping sequence.
The whole cast is good, but as always, all roads lead to Binoche, who is wonderful.
Audience Reviews for 1,000 Times Good Night
Despite its gorgeous cinematography and good performances, it is frustrating that, after a hard-hitting first hour, this disjointed drama loses focus with unnecessary details (the guilt issue, the plutonium remarks) and alienates us by turning the protagonist into a hideously selfish person.
