Split. Ended up impressed, albeit coldly. There's a reason ads aren't foregrounding plot. Seems broad, reveals specificity.
Rampling's good, though for a long while I felt the film was taking my fascination with her totally for granted. My dream: Joanne Woodward.
Holds to a long, slow arc of revelation that takes some fortitude on the parts of both filmmaker and audience. Still, some standard festival-film tropes.
