Despite the absurdity of the situation, they decide to follow the programme designed by Michael." (Cannes Film Festival)

If there’s a certain momentousness to the onscreen reunion of Isabelle Huppert and Gerard Depardieu — 35 years after Maurice Pialat’s “Loulou” — everything else in Guillaume Nicloux’s cryptic curio “Valley of Love” works strenuously against any mounting sense of consequence.

Guillaume Nicloux’s half-English language, semi-Lynchian movie has a divorced couple reunited after their son’s death, and features Depardieu’s best turn in years.

A French two-hander that's affecting and frustrating in equal measure.
