Orphan – Dir Arnaud des Pallières

Cast: Adèle Exarchopoulos, Gemma Arterton, Adèle Haenel, Solène Rigot

This is a story of a girl whose life is fractured by a tragic event, told over a series of time periods using different actresses to play the role of the girl.  I’m wondering if we were supposed to guess that this was the same girl and that would be the big surprise, however it’s not.  We know it’s the same girl.

This film was unnecessarily harsh and disturbing at times, and missed the mark in bringing the story together.  Maybe the story was supposed to be as fractured as the main character?

Best part of seeing this film was that we had time to walk from Hot Docs to Princess of Wales on a beautiful day!
