Verdict on Petit Mal
Petit Mal is an intimate drama following the lives of a throuple. It takes us behind closed doors into their personal life as they see how life changes over time. Giving us a chance to see how what looks like a complicated arrangement can run smoothly, even with the occasional problem.
This is a nice look at how things operate in a relationship others might not be used. It gets a personal feeling for how everything unfolds, without giving us a much bigger story going on. The performances in the movie are good and give everything a natural feel about what we are watching.
Final Thoughts – Petit Mal is a nice personal-feeling movie.
