DAY SEVEN OF THE 2014 NEW YORK JEWISH FILM FESTIVAL
After her mother dies, a grieving daughter (Sylvie Testud) finds documents that reveal a lost chapter in the lives of her parents.
Gorgeous semi-autobiographical period film written & directed by Diane Kurys turns out to be about French Holocaust survivors who find it difficult to put the horror behind them.
Sensuous & heart-breaking, For a Woman is a totally satisfying “movie movie” that also has a sly sense of humor.
