Assisted suicide frames a convincing family drama

Tribune News Service Sophie Marceau, left, and Andre Dussolier in a scene from “Everything Went Fine.”

Sophie Marceau is a French star whose screen appearances are tightly rationed. She is probably known best by American audiences for “Braveheart” (1995) as Princess Isabella who is sent to negotiate with the Scots as a distraction for William Wallace’s army, and the Pierce Brosnan James Bond picture “The World Is Not Enough” (1999) where she played Elektra King, the headstrong heiress 007 is assigned to guard.

Now we have “Everything Went Fine,” which overcomes its periodic lapses from tantalizing character study into literal melodrama on the strength of Marceau’s memorable performance and the simple, unorthodox tactic of being a good movie.
