Léa Seydoux brilliantly holds the center of Bruno Dumont’s unexpected and unsettling new film, which begins as a satire of contemporary news media before steadily spiraling out into something far richer and darker. Never one to shy away from provocation, Dumont casts Seydoux as France de Meurs, a seemingly unflappable superstar TV journalist whose career, home life, and psychological stability are shaken after she carelessly drives into a young delivery man on a busy Paris street. This accident triggers a series of self-reckonings, as well as a strange romance that proves impossible to shake. A film that teases at redemption while refusing to grant absolution, France is tragicomic and deliciously ambivalent—a very 21st-century treatment of the difficulty of maintaining one’s identity in a corrosive culture.
