    Elizabeth Olsen's latest title role performance is not as showy as herfirst; when she broke out with "Martha Marcy May Marlene" in 2011, hercharacter's heart and mind were the primary focus of the film. She usedher bland looks like the Japanese Noh mask or the Greek Archaic smile,which you could interpret as an expression of any emotion you wouldlike, thus lending mysteries and ambiguities. In "Therese" Olsen goes alot lighter, allowing us to detach from, or even dislike the apparentprotagonist if we choose so.

    By contrast, Therese's mother-in-law, Madame Raquin is played byJessica Lange with a heavy emotional emphasis. Few actresses entertainthe idea of playing characters with special physical conditions. Fewercan play them convincingly. Even fewer can play them without words.With Lange they all come as standard. While seemingly playing anantagonist, Lange makes a surprisingly gratifying character.

    Tom Felton's frail Camille is Therese's arranged husband, and OscarIsaac's strong Laurent is Therese's extra-marital affection; these twoactors are also solid as they play friends and enemies with polaropposite characteristics.

    While by employing a comedic tone director Charlie Stratton takes awaysome gravity from the serious subject, he nonetheless makes the antiquematerial accessible by wider audience. It is a rather simple story withnothing mysterious about its plot or its characters' feelings andmotives, but at the same time, so cleverly ambiguous on the moralground that you cannot easily decide for which character to root.

    Just recently Oscar Isaac wasn't recognized for his superb work in"Llewyn Davis". Here he plays Laurent, an apparent pursuer of goodtimes, in search of love, sex, and money. He meets a repressed andlustful young wife, trapped in a sad marriage to a man who can't giveher what she wants. Add to that the pressures and conventions of an agewhen women can't really express their true nature and desires.

    Soon, this young woman is involved in a passionate and reckless loveaffair that will have no good results. Defying expectations, eventsdon't quite turn out the way we are accustomed to. After a tragic"accident", we see the main characters in the story overwhelmed byguilt, greed, and grief. Isaac shines as the frustrated lover who seeshis plans fall apart. Therese becomes a ghost of herself, surpassingthe melancholic levels she experienced before meeting Laurent. Inaddition that the grieving mother must resort to desperate measures tolessen the impact of her son's death. This is where the film shinesbecause it's a portrayal of a complex combination of devastating anddark emotions. The exquisite photography mirrors the souls of the maincharacters. There is very little to cheer. Life is grim, Day to dayexistence is a drudgery, even love making appears forced and more of anobligation. Erotic moments are overshadowed by fear of getting caught.There is little to call happy or sexy here.

    The opening scenes in the country introduce a level of meticulousdetail to costumes and art direction, and it becomes more impressive inthe depiction of Paris, a city that many see as the epitome of glamour,but in here there is darkness in both its exterior and its soul. We seethe citizens of the place surrounded by women of questionablereputation, even the patrons of the shop appear almost anti-social.Homes are enveloped in darkness. It is amazing how spirits manage tosurvive.

    It's been ages since I have seen a film this beautiful, so full ofmasterful performances, such are the portrayals of Olsen, Isaac, andespecially Lange, who can convey so much feeling with a glance, a briefexchange of words, a gesture. The last twenty minutes are a showcase ofher amazing talents. 2014 saw an amazing display of histrionics,excessive budgets, and rather pedestrian dialogue pass as sophisticatedcomedy. The range here proves that much of the dark power of eroticforces can be portrayed by a guilty look, by yearning in a talentedperformer eyes. Not much flesh is exposed here, no loud soundtrack isforcing us to believe these are uncontrollable passions. It is allthere in a furtive hand fighting fabric to reach its goal, or thedesperate yearn of human beings who aren't happy or satisfied.Unrequited love or lust brings extreme pain, and in the end theconclusion can only be destructive.

    I can only hope this film finds an audience and shows us how wonderfultrue talent can be. I never thought noir could coexist with a periodpiece, that young performers could display such powerful range withoutresorting to overusing clever and loud wordplay. Not sure who said,maybe it was Wilder or Desmond, but it's the pictures that got smaller,not the stars. Too bad that some of the contemporary stars aren'tshining the way they could. Maybe our expectations have gotten smaller,too.
