Belleville Tokyo by Elise Girard (2012, 75 min.). Director Elise Girard skillfully portrays a disintegrating marriage with stark long takes and standout performances from her lead actors Valérie Donzelli and Jérémie Elkaïm. Julian fluctuates between leaving his pregnant wife Marie and staying in the relationship for their child. The tension mixed with feelings of regret is palpable, and as Marie waits for Julian to make a final decision, she seeks comfort in classical Hollywood films at her local theater. A striking and realistic depiction of an uncertain relationship, Belleville Tokyo is a stunning work.
