Watch Domestic Life movie and enjoy the drama. Once again , Isabelle Czajka is interested in women, and more specifically their relationship with our world today. After capturing the nervous teen girl of 17, in ” The Next Year ” , and after confronting a woman newly graduated from the difficulties of the first job, the director continues to walk the line of life by attacking , now a mother of 40 years. Juliette , a child in each hand, not blooms more in their daily like clockwork music , especially since the family moved into a residential suburb .
The camera then takes us into an anxiety and oppressive atmosphere , where beings are interchangeable, all with the same car , the same houses and the same ideas , husbands even wearing the same clothes . And while everyone seems to have fun in the evenings when we speak good booze and where shots are vehicle on ethnic minorities , the protagonist, beautifully played by Emmanuelle Devos, explodes, not arriving to breathe. By surgical staging , the director points to the emptiness of existence ball , juxtaposing different skits to denounce a certain reality.
Subtly, the filmmaker locks us into the same bourgeois illusion that these women without multiplying devices . If the scenario sometimes insist too heavily on awkward situations to highlight the point, “Domestic Life ” remains a strong drama where the obsession with time and the unspoken are more meaningful than lengthy dialogues. Worn by a perfect cast that spends definitely Emmanuelle Devos as one of the greatest French actresses, the film keeps its promise of depressive version of ” Desperate Housewives” , the spectacular and inconsistencies within . And even a few scriptwriting approximations are quickly forgotten .
