What’s French for “Wheeeee!”?

Declaration of War

Writer-director-actress Valérie Donzelli spins her personal tale of giving birth to a child with a potentially fatal illness into a vibrant love story filled with humor, drama, tension and visual verve. There are a handful of tonal missteps (where, exactly, did that musical number come from?), but the overall effect is one of deep emotion and a rich understanding of the filmmaking medium. In French with English subtitles. FULL REVIEW: Visually quirky French drama finds love, humor and drama in a child’s battle for life by Devin D. O’Leary (4/5/2012). 100 minutes Unrated.
