This is one of the more confusing biopics I have seen. We know that shooting of the film was complete by the time of Marie Trintignant 's tragic death so I can only assume that the director, her mother, was too upset to give the editing the attention it deserved or too busy writing her emotional book about Marie.
Even with that excuse it is hard to get to grips with what should have been a fascinating story. Colette (Trintignant ) hardly appears to age during her long life and characters, such as her husband, appear and disappear from the story without explanation. It is hard to sympathize with anyone in the movie. Trintignant seems to be sleep walking through the role... perhaps as a result of her difficult private life that became all too public.
