FILM REVIEW: «THE YOUNG LOVERS» (2021)
AN INTERVAL IN TIME THAT VANISHES / Score: 8
The origin of the fiction told here can be traced to the personal story of the Icelandic director Solveig Anspach, who died in 2015, at the age of fifty-four. A script inspired by his own mother was the original seed of this investigation into love, the finitude of life, illnesses, the passage of time and physical deterioration that, paradoxically, found its conclusion in the early departure of its creator. For her fourth feature film, the outstanding director Carine Tardieu, more than five years later, returns to this idea about the 'love story of our parents' as a mirror in which to see ourselves, providing an emotional tribute. Deconstructing the budding plot, reinterpreting the main characters and bequeathing us the return to the close-ups of one of the great Frencha ctresses of all time, he conceives a sensitive and empathetic work.
