    Blue Valentine

    Malgré un excellent jeu d’acteur, le revirement psychologique de la jeune femme ne me semble pas entièrement plausible. Certes, un avortement, même avorté si j’ose dire, laisse toujours des blessures profondes. Certes, sa relation avec son père ne lui avait pas permis de s’accomplir en tant que femme (sa mère lui confie que son propre mari ne l’a (...)
