Emotions, in Andre Techine’s films, are rarely warm or comforting and his families are full of guilt and resentment.
In Alice Et Martin, Alice (Juliette Binoche) is a musician sharing her Paris flat with gay actor Benjamin (Mathieu Amalric).
When Benjamin’s young half-brother Martin (Alexis Loret) shows up, she finds herself falling for him, not knowing the psychological damage he’s undergone.
The film is let down by Loret’s wooden acting but Binoche almost makes up for it. No extras.
