-MOVIE OF THE WEEK- Sur Mes Lèvres / Read My Lips (2001)

One of my favourite films by one of my favourite filmmakers. This ignored gem by Jacques Audiard, may not be as flashy or popular as his more recent works such as A Prophet (2009) or Dheepan (2015), however I still believe that it stands out as one of his best works. Extraordinary performances by Emmanuelle Devos and Vincent Cassel, a unique use of sound in terms of storytelling and just simply an engaging story, this film stands as one of the best but forgetten contemporary French films in recent years.
