A life more ordinary; YOUR MOVIES.

Byline: MARK ADAMS

35 SHOTS OF RUM 12A, 101mins Opens Friday, July 10

THE STARS

Alex Descas, Mati Diop, Nicole Dogue.

THE STORY

Widowed train driver Lionel (Descas) is devoted to his daughter (Diop) but is also aware that at some stage soon she will leave home.

THE VERDICT

This is a delicate and impressive French drama... in which very little happens. A group of ordinary people go through their ordinary lives but Claire Denis's film is still warm, affectionate and oddly absorbing. Subtitled.

FINAL CUT 3

A LOW-KEY and modest French affair.

CAPTION(S):

My girl ...Mati Diop as Josephine
