The wonderful thing about this film is that nobody proselytes his/her beliefs and philosophies about the many facets of acting, art and life in general.
They share observations, personal experiences and revelations; the film is so elegantly produced that the viewer is not only compelled to self examination but is also drawn into the various discussions vicariously with near tangible acuteness.
The power of the film is so subtly eloquent, the viewer is caught unawares and is emotionally ensnared before they realize that they have become willing captives to this thought provoking glimpse into a mirror that answers you back.
It is this intrinsically disquieting quality that is both disturbing and comforting all at once; yet this is precisely the triumph that Rampling & Co. strive to achieve and is in fact one of the driving themes of the film, that being the exercise of uncompromising introspection and self awareness.
this is an extraordinary film that transcends a glimpse into the life of an extraordinary woman, and it is so because Ms. Rampling herself understood that it needed to be so.
The actress is interviewed and filmed in a country house as well as strolling down a street in Paris or London or even in the south of France.
A film to be watched. And then re-watched again and again. The journey from "Georgy Girl" to "The Damned" and "The Swimming Pool" and beyond ("15 Years"). An inspiration to artists but not to the general public, who expect something very different.
