Editorial Reviews

HIDDEN LOVE moves between past and present to tell the story of a mother who was consumed with guilt and feelings of inadequacy when she gave birth. Disconnected from Sophie (Melanie Laurent) as a new mother, Danielle (Isabelle Huppert) seemed to do nothing right. Sophie now has her own tale to tell as the past is slowly stripped of its secrets. In the present, the two of them clearly hate each other and are separated by an immense anger. This is the mountain that both must climb if they have any hope of moving on.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth it for Greta Scacchi May 27, 2011
Verified Purchase
Normally Isabelle Huppert dominates every film she's in, but in this mother-daughter psychodrama Greta Scacchi is the standout; she gives a refreshingly thoughtful performance as the psychiatrist assigned to Huppert for long-term care. Scacchi has an undeniable presence that has grown even more compelling in recent years. Her understated, compassionate handling of the part of the psychiatrist made an otherwise low-key film resonate with intelligence, poetry and beauty.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed -- skip it April 20, 2011
No doubt about it - Isabelle Huppert gives a great performance, but the plot leaves a lot to be desired. The movie is intended to portray the fragile and doomed relationship between Melanie Laurent's character with her mother, played beautifully by Isabelle Huppert. However, the movie lacks credibility and Melanie Laurent's character seems half-asleep throughout the majority of the film. I admire both actresse's work, in particular Ms. Huppert, but I have to say this movie left me with a sour taste in my mouth. I wouldn't recommend this film to anyone, unless you enjoy long, drawn-out and very predictable endings. Watch The Pianist with Ms. Huppert instead, or Je vas bien, ne t'en fais pas, with Melanie Laurent, who gives an incredibly moving performance.

1.0 out of 5 stars Where is the Love? March 10, 2012
This film was torturous for me and I doubted that I even wanted to finish it. It's hard to watch a self-absorbed, mentally ill woman contort herself in her endless self-castigation. Huppert plays the part well and makes you really hate the character she portrays. "Extremely unloveable" is how I would describe her. It is the extreme of the famous hard-edged, je m'en fou of some of the other characters she portrays (La Vie Promise, The Piano, Violette).

I have been a big fan of Isabelle Huppert and have seen almost every film she's been in at least twice. This film shows her range and ability to make herself look ugly and truly insane. It is a great study in the hideous twists the human mind can get itself into.

Where is the love? The love is deeply hidden within her and can't get out because of how her mind operates and her extreme selfishness. This film is like spending a couple of hours with a miserable, depressed person who refuses to snap out of it.
