Con Garrel o entras o no entras. No hay término medio. A mi me interesan a priori sus historias de amor pero, se me caen al cabo de un rato. Los guiones pueden ser verosímiles pero los diálogos son imposibles. Menos mal que el film comienza por el final y así, si te quieres ir, puedes hacerlo. La he visto entera y algunas cosas me interesaron. Pero no todas.
One couple with more money than sense. Another with no money and a bit of sense. Freds idea of love and marriage, it's ok, they're only whores. Merde to that. Well done for leaving him. Just not gritty, or witty enough for me. I wanted to slap everyone. Sorry. Loved the John Cale music.
Would give it four stars, but the most hideous piano pieces in the history of the soundtrack killed the best scenes in the film. Can't believe John Cale wrote it/ artless and painfully sentimental gibberish. The film would be so much stronger if there was just music left in the dancing scene and the rest was left silent.
There wasn't really much to this. It's not as profound or moving or clever as it perhaps thinks it is. But I liked all of the performances and I'll watch Monica Bellucci in pretty much anything, so at least director Philippe Garrel gave the whole thing a boost when casting her in a central role.
The slow, inevitable decay of a relationship mimicked by the inexorable draining of the marvellous beauty that has been Monica Bellucci’s. And yes, as with Paul in the movie, you will laugh In astonishment at how beautiful MB still is. As honest as a film can get (no way could this have been made by Americans), nothing showy, nothing over-elaborated. People fall in and out of love. Life goes on. For almost everyone.
Believe me, I looked for some psychology complexity beyond war of the sexes shit. Reductive interactions - the allied women, angry artist, idolising friend. Unlike his contemporary Hong Sang-Soo, Garrel's observations are banal and offer a complicit relationship to bourgeoisie values. Kent Jones shone light on the personal quality, but watching I felt the drama removed to deflect intimacy. WTF was that song.
