    Berlinale 2012 Review: Melissa Leo Shines In Minutely Observed, Minimalist 'Francine'

    Evoking films like "Winter's Bone" and "Wendy and Lucy" in presenting a sparse, narrowly focused portrait of a lone female protagonist in adverse, not to say desperate circumstances, "Francine" is the kind of small film made for the festival circuit, and for which t...

    Berlinale 2012 Review: 'Bel Ami' Starring Robert Pattinson Fails To Seduce

    From behind, we watch a man in ragged clothes look longingly through the window of a fancy Belle Epoque Parisian restaurant.
