André Téchiné, who directed The Girl on the Train, returns with another penetrating psychological drama. In 1976 Nice, a young woman (Adèle Haenel) falls for a manipulative lawyer (Tell No One director Guillaume Canet) who wants control of the the casino owned by her mother (Catherine Deneuve). Techine rejects flashy Scorsese-style theatrics in favor of a more Shakespearean tragedy. Based on the sensational real-life French Riviera Casino Wars of the 1970s, the film features a regal turn from Deneuve and further evidence of Adèle Haenel’s immense versatility and remarkable talent. (116 min)

Intelligent, sensitive, literate, subtle: These are some of the qualities frequently ascribed to the French writer-director André Téchiné, for all the good it’s done him in terms of earning an American following. Even though he’s been winning awards and working with stars (Juliette Binoche, Daniel Auteil) since the ’70s, Téchiné hasn’t become a brand name like some of the other French filmmakers of his vintage (including his former screenwriter Olivier Assayas). Even a film like Wild Reeds—a marvelous coming-of-age fable that swept the New York and Los Angeles film critic awards back in 1994—has slipped through the cracks of the contemporary canon. In an era in which art-house directors from Paris to Seoul have embraced extremities of form and content, Téchiné’s smooth, proficient ensemble dramas seem to reek suspiciously of respectability.  –The A.V.
