A slow, moving tragic tale of a young woman's unrequited love and fall into madness.
The pace is slow and the tragedy
is horrifying.
Adjani as the obsessed lover is picture perfect.
Oh yes, the woman is the daughter of Victor Hugo and it is her real life story.

"16/08/2013 Lohduttomista rakkaustarinoista lohduttomimmasta päästä. Kuitenkin sitä olisi ehkä näin lohduttoman taustan omaavasta naisesta vielä hauraampaa kuvausta ja vastapainoksi lutnantti Pinsoniin asteen verran lisää joko kylmyyttä tai lämpöä. Isabelle Adjani on silti roolissan jälleen kerran hieno ja visuaalinen kerronta Truffautilla hanskassa."

New-to-Me Films of 2012 (366 movies items)

"A tragic film about a beautiful, talented, love-stricken young woman, and her slow descent into madness. Drawing out its slow pace carefully, Truffaut's directorial abilities are effectively manipulated to make this an excellent period piece of unrequited love. Lovely and fantastical, at all the right moments. The impact of the film as a whole, however, is undoubtedly made by Isabelle Adjani, who portrays the titular character with heartbreaking realism and just a tinge of melodrama. "

"18.10. Ihan pätevä kuvaus pakkomielteistä. Adjani mulkoilee tuttuun tapaansa erinomaisesti, mutta leffa ei välillä tunnu tietävän, mitä haluaa sanoa ja mihin hahmoon keskittyä. Pääpiste on tietysti Adelella, mutta sitten lopussa tulee ihan turhaan kertojanäänellä tarinaa Victor Hugosta, joka ei ole elokuvassa kuin etäinen rahanlähde. Jotkin ratkaisut ovat vain idioottimaisia, mutta aikakausi on luotu komeasti ja leffa jää ehdottomasti plussalle."

"Halifax, 1863. Uma jovem mulher usando o nome de Lewly chega ao local com o objetivo de achar o tenente Albert Pinson (Bruce Robinson), por quem é obcecada apesar dele ele não lhe corresponder o amor. Na verdade ela é Adèle Hugo (Isabelle Adjani), segunda filha de Victor Hugo, o grande escritor francês. Esta situação a deixa em um desespero crescente, ficando perturbada e a levando a um processo de auto-destruição "

Sem amor, só a loucura.

“O filme pode ser visto por dois pontos de vista. Um, que acha que

Adele deve seguir até o fim para conseguir o seu amor, e outro que

a vê como uma louca, exagerada. Fico no meio termo. A história é

bonita, e o final infeliz fecha o filme com chave de ouro. O amor

de Adele Hugo, embora obsessivo, dá-lhe inspiração para escrever

coisas lindas - o que de fato me deixou bem curiosa para ler o diário

dela. Quanto a direção, Truffaut não decepcionou ninguém. Os atores

foram bem escolhidos e posicionados em cada cena. O amor de Adele

pode ter levado-a à loucura, mas é profundo, belo. A prova de que

nem sempre amores não-recíprocos são algo ruim: podem lhe servir de

inspiração.” read more
