Catherine Breillat ফ্রান্স, 2001

Richmond Hill's rating of the film Brief Crossing

A thoughtful analysis of gender semantics via sexual play, stripping through the layers of fig leaves, crutches and posturing we've all probably employed in one form or another. It's rather more equivocal than other works by Breillat where the parred-down quality - sexual politicking as well as aesthetic - works in it's favour depicting the eternal struggle in a series of mundanities, such is its true habitat.
