FILM REVIEW: «BOTH SIDES OF THE BLADE» (2022)
THE ODD NUMBER / Score: 9
Veteran French director Claire Denis has directed thirteen films in total to date. As an author's brand, its characters are certainly marginal beings that move in a hostile territory. Denis, seventy years old and with total poise, portrays the complex mechanisms that characterize human relationships and the omnipresent sensuality in his view of the world is another unmistakable trace of his filmography. All these variables come together in his most recent work: "Con Amor y Furia". The dimensions that a domestic matter reaches that involves a third party in discord describe the emotional abyss to which a middle-aged couple enters. A melodramatic twist in the best Douglas Sirk style bursts into the plot, framing the return of a shadow from the past, and a magnificent tour de force of sensations by two living glories of world acting.
