"So it is how you go through history, and how history wounds you and how love saves you and then loses you again, like history nearly did."
Problems: 1st some ideias and stories weren't well developed, after Llile appear, the ideia revolution gets lost, and some characters just come and go without explanations. 2nd It is kind of too utopic, the revolution and the life they take... 3th: I thought François could have had a really important function as a revolutionary,.as a poet, as an intelectual. It passed of a political story to a love story.
Really Good, it's long, but it's not boring at all, because it is so beautiful and talks about loneliness, love, life, dreams. Why a movie have to be only 2 hours to talk about it?
This movie won't leave me alone - at all. It seems to be constantly invading my mind, and my writing. It is, quite simply, perfection, and I cannot wait to see it again. If I see another Garrel film that beats this one, in terms of closeness to me (because his other films, too, have been great so far), then I will be shocked, and yet incredibly humbled. Savvy
It feels like a perfectly preserved artifact, wholly exhumed from a May '68 mass grave. If I didn't know this film was made in 2005, I would have bet a million dollars it was at least 35 years old. It's as if Garrel's internal cinematic clock stopped ticking decades ago. Bertolucci's The Dreamers has never looked so stupid (and Bertolucci is brilliantly called out by the film for his stupidity)
