    Subject

    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.”
