Marie Curie

Search Movies

“Without Pierre, I’m nothing,” cried Marie Curie after a freak traffic accident claimed the life of her renowned husband. She had a point: not only did she lose the first great love of her life, Madame C. soon learned that, no matter how closely the two had worked together in the lab, her husband’s title was not “transferable by marriage.” And a scandalous relationship with one of her husband’s former students gets her kicked to the curb after he refuses to break up his marriage for her. Even with subtitles, this account of the pioneering, two-time-Nobel-prizewinning chemist shares much in common with a Lifetime movie (minus the full-frontal nudity). A lightweight, post-feminist melodrama emerges as Curie runs head-first into one wall of disagreeable patriarchs after another. Director Marie Noelle decision to shoot hand-held in dishwater tones makes the film indistinguishable from a whole generation of biopics; only Karolina Gruszeka’s lead performance stands out. Honestly, you’d be better off finding the MGM version from 1943. (2016) — Scott Marks

The cinematography is spectacular. Does this film critic really know anything about film cinematography?! And when he did see the 1945 MGM version last time, or did he see it at all? How can you even compare these two movies? And that stupid remark about full frontal nudity! You must really be a Victorian pervert to stress it out. A very poor review: 0/5.
