Director Catherine Corsini doesn't pull any punch depicting a love
triangle of sort in Partir. Suzanne is a typical bourgeois wife of
Samuel, a well-connected doctor. Children, big house, steady comfort,
Suzanne has everything she could want, except passion. One day, she
meets Ivan who make ends-meet working odd jobs and something clicks.
This very simple, very classic story is made worthwhile for several
reasons. The main one being Kristin Scott Thomas delivering yet again a
masterful performance. The role is tailor- made for this actress who
knows how to subtly let us share the confused state of mind her
character is in. Sergi Lopez and Yvan Attal are also good, although
their roles are understandably much less challenging.
Where the screenplay shines is by not spoon-feeding us with
justifications or condemnations for the characters. Suzanne's husband
does seem somewhat boring, but he's not some evil one-dimensional
character. And her new romantic interest Yvan is not an adventurous
"alpha male". In fact, although Yvan does represent the freedom Suzanne
never had thanks to his bohemian lifestyle, he seems like a somewhat
vulnerable man and not terribly versed in "romancing" a woman. She
seems more like the one pursuing him to enter this relationship.
Speaking of relationships, this is also where the movie shines. We're
never entirely sure if what Suzanne is experiencing is true love, or
rather if she's just looking for a way out from her husband and
lifestyle. The director doesn't hold anything back, showing the
vulnerability of each of the three character, how selfish they can be,
discarding their responsibilities, lying and justifying reprehensible
acts against each others.
This film is fascinating because, in the true tradition of French
cinema, it goes for realism. You've seen some of these things happen
around you, you may have lived through them. Watch this movie with a
few people and you're likely to find people split. Some might
sympathize with Suzanne, others with her husband, others with her
lover. Yet others might sympathize with all three or none of them.
In short, Catherine Corsini is not trying to tell you what you should
think and lets you make your own impressions throughout the events
depicted. There is joy and pain in relationships because relationships,
like us, aren't perfect. This is one such story, showcasing the
My rating would be higher had we been provided with more context. We
barely get a glimpse of Suzanne before she meets Yvan. As well, the
conclusion did seem sudden and over-the- top to me. Lastly, I feel the
husband and children could have used a few more minutes of screen time.
