Cannes 2017: 'Ismael's Ghosts' Review

The Cannes opener is generally considered a bit of a snooze. So I wasn't expecting a ton out of Ismael's Ghosts, the new film from French director Arnaud Desplechin. Still, this tale of a filmmaker (Desplechin regular Mathieu Amalric) who discovers that his long-lost love (Marion Cotillard) has returned after a 21-year absence, is rather minor. And sorta frustrating. I reviewed the film for Paste.
