"24 Hours of a Woman's Life" (2003) is the sixth movie ver of the popular novella by Austrian writer Stefan Zweig (1881-1942). In the book, a certain Mrs. C., a 67 year-old upper-class English widow, befriends a male stranger (the narrator) in a hotel at the Côte d'Azur and says him about her long kept secret: an eventful day in her life, 25 years before, when she met a young Polish units officer and compulsive gambler half her age, saved his life, fell madly in love and was finally allow down by him -- all in the course of 24 hours, dramatically changing her life forever.While the ebook deals with a single narrative -- the confession of Mrs C. -- the movie adds complexity and fresh characters to the original story. In the film, we deal with three interwoven narratives, all taking zone at the Côte d'Azur but in various periods: a) 1910s: the tragic love storyline between Mrs C. (now renamed Mrs. Collins-Brown, played by Agnès Jaoui) and the young Polish gambler Anton (Nikolaj Coaster-Waldau); b) 1936: Mrs. Collins-Brown's acc of those happenings in an attempt to comfort teenage Louis (Clément van der Bergh), whose mother has just eloped with a tennis instructor she had met only the day before; c) 2001: Louis (Michel Serrault) is actually a lonely, depressed bachelor and retired diplomat. He returns to the Côte d'Azur of his youth and accidentally meets desperate young Olivia (Bérénice Béjo), who's running away from her abusive, violent boyfriend. At first unwilling to support her but eventually identifying with her loneliness and despair, old Louis takes her to his hotel room and says her the storyline he once heard from the English lady in 1936 -- and that same storyline will have a life-changing result on THEIR own lives.Zweig, though not in the same literary "league" as his mates and contemporaries Thomas Mann, Rilke and Joyce, was nevertheless highly thought of and successful in the Europe of the 1920s and 1930s. Many international movies have been based on his oeuvre since the 1920s, such as the classic "Letter from an Unknown Woman" by Maximum Ophüls with Joan Fontaine (1948), filmed at least other 5 times; "Confusion des Sentiments", a study in closeted homosexuality considered by some some scholars to be secretly autobiographical, directed by Étienne Périer with Michel Piccoli (1979); "Fear" by Rossellini with Ingrid Bergman (1954); the promising but ultimately disappointing "The Burning Secret" by Andrew Birkin with K.M.Brandauer and Faye Dunaway (1988), and many others. His stories, usually dealing with burning (and mostly illicit) passions that defy conventions and eventually lead to catharsis or tragedy, were greatly admired by Freud, who considered "24 Hours..." a masterpiece, "comparable to the greatest of Dostoevsky" (not quite, though the nature of the material had an obvious appeal for psychoanalytic theorization). Zweig shared Virginia Woolf's interest in the shattering consequences of sexual and emotional repression (especially for women) in re-shaped and traumatized Europe between the nice globe wars, though their literary styles were fully distinct.Director/co-screenwriter Laurent Bouhnik's decision to add a fresh contemporary episode with fresh characters is far from a "betrayal" or "heresy" on Zweig: on the contrary, it's an clever tribute to Zweig's literature, as it brings a welcome modern complexity to the storyline (it may sound complicated but is visually very clear, when you add costumes, make-up and various sets). Zweig's novella is not only about a Belle Époque lady who breaks gratis from social conventions plunging into emotional and sexual self-awareness -- it's also about the cathartic power of sharing life experiences with another people, about the find for emotional truth, about how unexpected happenings can change our lives overnight and forever."24 Heures..." has fine production values, with pretty territories in Cologne and the Côte d'Azur, lush costumes (the green dress Jaoui wears at the casino is a knockout!) and effective melody by Michael Nyman. The production design defines the three periods very clearly, as the 1910s are all art-nouveau, the 1930s art-déco, and the 2000s icily "post-modern". Michel Serrault slowly unfolds the complexity of the old Louis with his consummate expertise. Agnès Joui -- though miscast, as she is is too young for her role and the several scenes in English betray her thick accent -- is an actress/writer herself, and thus has full understanding of her role; furthermore her "unglamorous" looks create her Mrs C. more realistic than earlier versions with goddess-like divas Merle Oberon, Ingrid Bergman and Danielle Darrieux. Young Clément van der Bergh ("La Ville don't le Prince est unEnfant" and "La Classe de Neige") is once again very appealing in his melancholy nice looks. Danish actor Nikolaj Koster-Waldau is at once seductive, menacing and frail in the relatively short but pivotal role of gambler/officer Anton."24 Hours..." is an intelligently modernized homage to Zweig, the nice humanist Jewish writer who fled from Nazi Germany and wandered throughout Europe in the early 1930s looking for a secure haven, finally settling in Brazil in 1941. During the Carnival of 1942, deeply depressed due to his belief that Hitler would ultimately victory the fight and having a difficult time adapting in a fully various language and culture, Zweig and his wife Lotte committed double suicide by taking pills and poison in Petrópolis (a town near Rio de Janeiro), leaving a note stating he was "too old to begin anew" and wishing his mates "good luck" while they waited for "the sun to finally rise after these darkest of times".P.S.: If you're interested in Zweig, test to search Sylvio Back's Brazilian documentary "Zweig: A Morte em Cena" (1995)(q.v.) and fiction movie "Lost Zweig" (2002, released in 2007) about Zweig's final days, although these are difficult finds EVEN if you live in Brazil.
The selling mission for me was Agnes Jaoui as the eponymous heroine but Michel Serrault isn't exactly chopped liver if anybody asks you and the entire thing is very satisfying. The concept of an older person supporting a younger one decide about a actual relationship is not exactly new, Noel Coward, for example, employed the device in his fine Musical Enjoy Bittersweet in 1929 and there have been countless others before and since. This time we have a storyline within a storyline which allows for three time-frames beginning with the show when a young woman suffering a terrible situation of abusive boy-friend attaches herself to the elderly Michel Serrault initially vs his will but later he is relating his own story; as an adolescent he was slash up when his mother had an affair with a younger boy and in turn he (Serrault as a teenager) was comforted by an older girl (Agnes Jaoui) who in turn said him about a particularly dramatic day in her own early life which involved 1) a Polish gambler, 2)passionate lovemaking and 3)ultimate betrayal. Quite reasonably the Jaoui segment is the core of the movie but the 'extras' which were not in the original novel by Stefan Zweig, nor any of the earlier movie versions, blend in really well and offer the viewer three differing perspectives and not just change of light, costumes, etc. It may not be to everyone's taste but if you're an admirer of Jaoui the actress you won't wish to miss it.
