Valley of Love

The Gist: Long after their divorce, Isabelle and Gérard travel together to the Death Valley to fulfill a final request from their son's suicide note.

Full disclosure: the main reason why I decided to watch this movie was its location, since the Death Valley is one of the most beautiful places I've ever visited.

Fortunately, Valley of Love turned out to be a decent exploration of love and loss. Isabelle Huppert and Gérard Depardieu, two greats of French cinema, are always a guarantee of quality.

The Bottom Line: If you decide to watch this movie, keep in mind that it's not your typical Hollywood fare, both in terms of directorial style, acting, and writing. This is not meant to scare you away, as the movie is quite nice, but I feel like it's best to know this going into it.

Grade: 6
