Stormy Weather

A French psychiatrist (Elodie Bouchez) becomes obsessed with a mute, mysterious female patient (novelist Didda Jonsdottir), to the extent of trying to gain legal custody over her after she's returned to her family in Iceland. Writer-director Solveig Anspach (Raise the Heart!) creates a convincing medical milieu in France and makes good use of desolate Icelandic landscapes. But she never establishes why the doctor is so committed to this particular woman (who seems to be her only patient), or why the patient is so traumatized (beyond the fact that her husband is a drunk), or how the U.S. can create a health care system in which doctors altruistically follow needy patients around the globe. In French with subtitles. 88 min.
