What's happening?


The Plough (2023) is a French drama film directed by Philippe Garrel, which revolves around the scions of a French puppeteering troupe facing major life changes. In this review, we will take a closer look at the film and analyze its strengths and weaknesses.

Plot Summary

The film centers around the lives of the scions of a French puppeteering troupe. The siblings, played by Garrel’s own actor children, Esther Garrel and Louis Garrel, are dealing with their own personal struggles while trying to keep their family business afloat. Their father, a former puppeteer, passes away, leaving them with the daunting task of preserving their family legacy.


The Plough is a beautifully shot film, with stunning cinematography that captures the essence of rural France. Garrel’s direction is subtle and nuanced, allowing the story to unfold organically. The film’s pacing, however, can feel slow at times, and the story lacks a clear sense of direction. While the film is an interesting character study, it may not appeal to viewers who are looking for a more engaging plot.

One of the film’s strengths is the performance of Esther Garrel and Louis Garrel. They deliver nuanced performances that convey the complexities of sibling relationships. Their chemistry on screen is palpable and adds depth to the film’s exploration of family dynamics. The supporting cast also delivers solid performances, but the film ultimately belongs to the Garrel siblings.


In conclusion, The Plough is a low-stakes trifle that will primarily appeal to Philippe Garrel fans and family members of the cast. While the film has its strengths, including beautiful cinematography and strong performances, it ultimately lacks a clear sense of direction and may feel slow to some viewers. Nonetheless, the film offers an interesting exploration of family dynamics and is worth a watch for those who appreciate character-driven dramas.
