Synopsis

Fabienne is an aging French movie star who, despite her momentary lapses in memory, remains a venerable force to be reckoned with.

Don’t come in expecting high-stakes melodrama, soul-twisting resolutions, or fiery exchanges. This is one of those meditative films about a fragment of life, wherein we find distinct familiarities. It demands that we slow down and appreciate its leisurely pace, its elegiac/humorous tone – and primarily, its lead performance.

A very European film of charm and wit that hits the occasional emotional high note, and sees Catherine Deneuve embracing her tastiest role since Potiche with verve and gusto.

Deneuve's slyly self-satirizing performance ... ensures that The Truth remains a pleasurable entertainment.
