Winter’s Child (1989)

A little too soap opera-ish for my liking – cheating boyfriends, abandoned children, unrequited love etc. – but Assayas nevertheless stages it all with a confidence and simplicity that keeps it engaging and puts the performances front and centre. Everyone puts good work in, just the point it arrives at and the journey it takes to get there feels done to death.
