Time Out

Every emotion is bang-on; every scene unfolds grippingly and naturally; and by the end, these characters feel like people you know.

This intelligent, insightful gem presents a series of snapshots of a disintegrating family, blending acute social vision with heartbreaking intimacy, cementing Quillévéré's reputation as one of France's most remarkable young film-makers.

It's a stunningly confident piece of filmmaking, which holds on to vital clues about how much time has elapsed, and what's happened, then springs them on us.

There is beauty, simplicity and mystery in Katell Quillévéré's film Suzanne, about a truck-driver's daughter in France who gets into trouble.
