Suite Française (2015)
Genre: War, Romance, Drama
I hadn’t read this book or seen any trailers when I went to see this film so I watched with no reservations. I loved this film 😀 ! It was very sweet yet captivating at the same time. I loved seeing a side of Second World War that I have not seen before. The action was not as wow as one might expect during a war film but I felt that it complemented the level Romance we were given. I did want to see more Romance between Lucile and Bruno but that might just be me 😛 . The chemistry between the two leading actors was very convincing. I personally liked the narration of the film which helped the overall atmosphere of the film and I like that actual French voices were used in the radios / papers and Germans spoke German! It made it seem like the film truly is set in France even if the actors are speaking in English for our benefit. The ending was not the best in the world but when learnt why…it made the film better in my opinion. A little gem that really needed to be watched! Enjoy 😀 !!!
I give the film 4.5 Stars out of 5!
