Twitter Capsule: Emotions less rich than in Hansen-Løve's follow-ups but her trademark delicacy with story and cast fully manifests.

VOR:   An object lesson in refusing Hollywood reflex: no revelation of the secret kept from Mom, no tearful remonstrations or firm dénouement. Thing is, in France, this is hardly novel.
