If You Don't, I Will2014

  • 3.4
Pomme and Pierre have been together a long time. Passion and spontaneity have given way to predictability and cold shoulders. But there's a lingering optimism, a hope they can return to the couple they used to be, attending chic art openings and sharing a laugh like young lovers. On a hike together one afternoon, Pomme declares her independence by deciding to stay in the woods rather than return to an underwhelming life with Pierre. Pierre tries to get back to normal, despite his worry over her whereabouts and the indelible sense that he's missing his better half. Meanwhile, Pomme begins an extended meditation in the forest on where her own life should go next, with or without Pierre. In the end, both are left to contemplate the strength and meaning of each other's commitment.

Sophie Fillieres' movie is peculiar. It seemed a bit slight the first time I saw it. A few days later I came to the conclusion that there was nothing slight about it. Emmanuelle Devos and Mathieu Amalric play a couple who appear to have become bored with their marriage. A pleasant hike quickly devolves into a bitter walk of mutual resentments. The film is often realistically amusing, but when these two people get lost -- there is a deep feeling of sadness that emerges. Neither knows if they want to find their way back "home."

Emmanuelle Devos is absolutely outstanding in this film, perhaps her best acting to date, A very emotionally sensitive drama that reflects many of todays marriages. Sometimes people are trapped in a relationship and need to step outside to look inside. Free themselves and run free like a saved chamois.

An understated and, at first, seemingly mildly funny (it was categorized as a comedy, so I watched it expecting a rom-com) and quotidian account of a relationship that has lost its mojo; however, slowly and surely, insightful moments into each lover's struggle begin to build something memorable and serve as a touchstone of—not answers, but—pertinent questions about the expectations and limitations of love that I'll never forget. I'm quite sure about this.

Very honest view of a relationship in crises. At times painful to watch but very real and revealing.
