(aka "Marie-Jo and Her 2 Loves" )


directed by Robert Guédiguian
France 2002


On the old smugglers' trail, during a picnic, Marie-Jo presses the blade of a knife to her wrist. She is very much in love with Daniel, her husband, and loves Marco, her lover, just as intensely. When Marie-Jo leaves to live with Marco for a while, Daniel waits calmly for her to return, experiencing intense pain that prevents him from breathing. The three of them know that there's no way out...
These two loves are impossible to live. Yet life goes on. The blade against her wrist isn't an answer. The seasons pass, Daniel builds houses, Marco guides ships... And just as the sun is born and dies each day, Marie-Jo has two loves...


Theatrical Release: France 16 May 2002 (Cannes Film Festival) (premiere)

Comments The Australian AV Channel / Madman gives us a strong DVD from a film by director Robert Guédiguian (Marius and Jeanette, La Ville est Tranquille, The Last Mitterrand). This could possibly be the only DVD with English subtitles, so I'm very pleased to have it at all. The anamorphic picture is sharp, the visible grain in the picture is most probably from the film stock used (I don't believe it's a fault on the image). The English subtitles are in yellow. This DVD can be bought trough Amazon.UK at the present.
