There's piercing sadness, and fury, too, in this Everyman's isolation, and Cantet is singularly skilled at evoking the universal condition of such tragic ordinariness.

I admire the closing scenes of the film, which seem to ask whether our civilization offers a cure for Vincent's complaint.
Recoing's performance is a sensitive portrayal of a man in the throes of an excruciating spiritual crisis.
Theater veteran Recoing is utterly compelling. Both the script and the resourceful, subtle actor provide enormous insight into the troubled character.
Not just an especially subtle and thoughtful psychological drama, it's a provocative, even an unnerving one as well.
Vincent is played masterfully by Aurelien Recoing, who gives him a sort of as-if anomie; this haunted hero is so detached that he may not realize he has no real life to be detached from.
