Il y a longtemps que je t’aime –
Directed by Philippe Claudel, the 2008 drama Il y a longtemps que je t’aime (I’ve loved you so long in English), is a poignant and thought provoking story which examines the power of love, between parents and children, between sisters and between friends.
The story begins with the release of the protagonist, Juliette (interpreted with great empathy and grace by Kristin Scott Thomas), from prison. She is met by her younger sister, Léa (Elsa Zylberstein), who takes her to her family home, where Juliette will be staying. Although she has been reunited with her sister after fifteen years in prison, Juliette is distant and cold; she appears to be unable to return to the life she left behind so long ago. However, although the ghost of her crime prevents her from resuming normal relationships with her loved ones, its nature remains a mystery, not only to the audience, but to Léa as well. It is only as she begins to relax into the warmth and gentleness of her sister’s family that the true gravity of what she has done is gradually revealed…
