Un couteau dans le coeur

Yann Gonzalez Francia, 2018

mpho3's rating of the film La daga en el corazón

Late 70s gay Paris under the lens of love, mystery, suspense, and porn. Trivial yet ambitious, it succeeds on all levels, especially stylistically. Still, it's ridiculous, which I only hold against it after the extreme displeasure of having watched Gonzalez's short, Islands, afterward. Would that I had not. 3.5 stars
