Twitter Capsule: I'm where I always am with Desplechin: I admire all his empathy and craft but just don't feel swept up. Cold awe.

VOR:   Desplechin devotees should be pleased, as will francophiles and general fans of novelistic stories told with subtle cinematic craft and flair. Still, it all feels so familiar.
