Director: Guillaume Nicloux.
Starring: Isabelle Huppert, Gérard Depardieu. France/Belgium 2015. 92 mins. French with English subtitles.
A long-divorced couple of successful French actors, Isabelle (Huppert) and Gérard (Depardieu) find themselves reunited by a letter received six months after his suicide from their son, Michael. The letter invites them to a rendezvous in California’s Death Valley on a specific date – with a promise that Michael himself will somehow appear. His presence transpires to be more metaphysical than supernatural, and what ensues is a sly opportunity for writer-director Guillaume Nicloux to reflect on the celebrity culture that he explored with 2014’s faux documentary The Kidnapping Of Michel Houellebecq. Depardieu and Huppert, who last worked together 36 years ago on Maurice Pialat’s Loulou, give marvellously subtle performances as the estranged, agreeably spiky pair.
