In Changing Times, André Téchiné’s strangely inert drama about fluidity of identity set in Morocco, a masklike Catherine Deneuve stars as an unyielding wife and mother and Gérard Depardieu plays an old flame who has never stopped loving madame’s hauteur. Exploring cultural as well as emotional stasis, the esteemed French filmmaker (Wild Reeds) also probes cultural chasms between Westernized French folk and Muslims and devises nouveau family arrangements among gay, straight, and bisexual young people. But the effect is more drily sociological than dramatic.
