I was fascinated by the face of Emmanuelle Devos, and her face is specifically why I recommend the movie.

The ending is a stunner. Like those '30 classics it suggests, Gilles' Wife seduces us with true cinematic magic: rich characters, great acting and that rapturous old French blend of realism and theatricality.
Told primarily via body language and facial expressions with a minimum of dialogue, beautifully observed, emotionally intense tale is an ambitious and rewarding outing for Frederic Fonteyne.
Devos's performance is an expert workshop of internalized emotions and silent forbearance.
