Lost in Love!
By Robert Waldman
Die hard romantics May find some solace with One Fine Morning. Somewhat dark and rather flattish, if there is such a word, our story transcends the generations. Told from the heart this new film from Sony Pictures Classics and Mongrel Media is now holding court at the VanCity Theatre.
Who doesn’t love a love affair if sincere. One Fine Morning tracks the upheaval in a single mom’s life as her aging dad slowly becomes more burdensome by the hour. Once glamourous two time Bond Babe Lea Seydoux convincingly plays a caring mother who tends to her aging dad while embarking on a romance with – you guessed it – a married man. French morality is on the more liberal side as is the nudity Ms. Seydoux displays.
No real new ground is covered In this slow paced movie which actually fits the main subject matter of aging too a tee. Shot In French ( In Paris, no less) with English Subtitles if you enjoy family portraits you may find One Fine Morning to your liking. Unfortunately we have seen films like this where a family member heads to the hospital and/or old age home done many times before so there’s no real new ground covered here. Ditto for an affair.
