I highly enjoyed Le Prénom. The dialogs are so dinamic, with such a fluidity and the perfomances are sublime.
A simple story idea that works very well.
“What’s in a Name” is a story with an amazingly simple plot…yet it works exceptionally well. The writing, acting and directing are spot on…and make this a French film well worth seeking.
The film is set almost entirely in an apartment and you can easily see that this was once a play. In this apartment, a group of friends and family get together and the evening goes normally enough…to a point. However, when one of the friends makes a stupid joke, the climate in the room becomes quite chilly. Then, soon after, folks start saying things they’ve never said before…and the room practically becomes the next ice age! While some will undoubtedly see this as a comedy, instead I see it as a very well constructed drama…one that really sucked me into the story. Well made and unique.
