Marion Vernoux – Rien a Faire AKA Empty Days (1999)

“In French cinema, the simplest subjects often make the most striking films, and Marion Vernoux’s charming but touching romantic drama Rien à faire bears that out. Although the plot is admittedly anodyne stuff, its treatment is pure auteur and the result is a captivating film showing the brutal fragility of an ephemeral romance. The inventive cinematography vividly conveys the mood of the lead characters – frequent moments of euphoria piercing a sense of suppressed melancholia as Marie and Pierre discover a shared relief from their monotonous and unfulfilled lives. Compelling naturalistic performances from Valeria Bruni Tedeschi and Patrick Dell’Isola make this a satisfying and moving minimalist drama about those eternal themes of love, loneliness and desire. “
