French Film Review: Hold Me Tight

French Film Review: Hold Me Tight

This deeply emotional drama, which was nominated for Best Actress and Best Adapted Screenplay César Awards, stars Vicky Krieps as Clarisse, a mother coping with great emotional upheaval, and Arieh Worthalter as Marc, the husband she leaves behind. Krieps gives a riveting performance as a woman on the run from her family for reasons that aren’t immediately clear to the audience.

Amalric’s sophisticated narrative alternates between Clarisse’s adventures on the road and scenes of her abandoned husband as he struggles to take care of their children, Paul and Lucie, a pianist prodigy. While giving us some clues along the way, Amalric keeps viewers uncertain as to the reality of what they’re seeing right up until the film’s  final moments
