gets a new look !
Jacques returns after a long absence to his wife Dominique and their daughter Lola in their isolated house, located on a hillside in Provence. Dominique is crouching and crying. She had asked Jacques to go because she could not stand him seeing her crying. Jacques powerlessly witnesses the excesses of Dominique's emotions. She understands that he loves another woman, and ousts him again...
The third film by Jacques Doillon (previously he made Fingers In The Head and A Bag Of Marbles), The Crying Woman was very well received by the French critics, and was reviewed in Variety with these words: “a personal but muted look at a love triangle. Doillon plays the man himself and his own little daughter is in the film.... The film deals with a domestic crisis when a philandering husband, whose peccadilloes have been accepted, now seems to be really in love.”
