The Crying Woman

Filmmaker Jacques Doillon plays the lead in his 1978 feature about familial discord, the archetypal Doillon subject. The hero returns to his wife (Dominique Laffin) after a prolonged absence and they try to effect a reconciliation, largely because of their daughter; Haydee Politoff plays the husband’s mistress. In keeping with the intimate treatment of an intimate subject, the characters’ first names are the same as the actors’. (JR)
