181) Family Resemblances (1996) and 185) Let it Rain (2008)

181) Family Resemblances (1996) Dir: Cedric Klapisch Date Released: June 1998 Date Seen: May 29, 2010 Rating: 3.75/5

185) Let it Rain (2008) Dir: Agnes Jaoui Date Released: June 2010 Date Seen: June 1, 2010 Rating: 3.5/5

I like the marriage of Klapisch's normally hyper sensibility with Jaoui's theatrical drama in Family Resemblances and consider Let it Rain to be the best (ie: the most refined and hence bearable) of the films she's directed thus far. See my interview with Jaoui for CityArts, reprinted on the New York Press's site.
