Critic Reviews for Frankie
The whole thing struck me as pleasant, nicely judged, and unremarkable, right up to a final shot so graceful and moving that it sent waves of poignancy backwards through the movie.
Frankie is proof that you can put brilliant actors in a beautiful setting and a film can still come out muddled.
The disparity between the easy-breezy locale's doctrine of R&R and the gravely existential story that unfolds there results in a peculiarly heavy slightness.
Alongside the magnetic Isabelle Huppert in a role that draws with equal grace from her well of dry humor, flinty intelligence, diva hauteur and internalized sorrow, there are affecting moments to savor also from... a solid ensemble cast.
Sachs is such a talented film-maker, but this is a baffling misstep.
