You Will Be Mine DVD Review

Mine

“You Will Be Mine” seems confused as to what it is.

As Marie begins studies as a pianist at a renowned conservatory, she decides to move in with a friend (Emma) whom she hasn’t seen in awhile. Amidst struggles with the rigorous piano training, Marie’s relationship with Emma becomes filled with tension as it’s clear Emma has sexual feelings for her and is extremely possessive of her. As Marie becomes uncomfortable with Emma’s unwanted attention, the dynamic between the two becomes strained to say the least.

“You Will Be Mine” is a frustrating film in that writers Jean-Luc Gaget, Eric Veniard, and Sophie Laloy (who also directs) are seemingly indecisive as to how this movie should unfold. The film starts off promising enough with a good set-up of two longtime friends becoming roommates with things becoming weird between the two, and yet, the writers never do much with this concept. One thinks the story would veer into an almost thriller territory, but the drama never becomes as intense as it could be. One would think the characters past (or indeed present) would be explored more, but it’s not. One would think this story of jealousy, sexual confusion, and possession would escalate more, but it tends to go in circles without a proper resolution. Everything about the story feels underdeveloped, sometimes forced, and tonally confused.

The saving grace here is the acting by stars Judith Davis (Marie) and Isild Le Besco (Emma) who drive the movie to be sure. They deliver raw, convincing performances and try to do their very best with the underwhelming material they are given.

Video/Audio:

Presentation: 1.85:1. How does it look? The transfer is a little fuzzy but it’s decent enough.

Audio Track: French 2.0 Stereo. How does it sound? The music and dialogue aren’t going to blow you away, but they sounded adequate.

The only extras are trailers for other titles.
