  1. Jamie Steele's rating of the film Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story)

    I wonder if I hadn't read the reviews before watching Bang Gang whether I would have been on the look out for the ample Gus Van Sant references. It resonates with Van Sant's Elephant in terms of the repeated images of the sky and clouds as well as with the focus on a group of high-schoolers. There is also a bit of Gerry in there. This film shows the high-esteem that many young french directors hold for Van Sant.

  2. Nachtreich's rating of the film Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story)

    Peccato enorme, i primi 5 minuti (precisi) mi eran piaciuti moltissimo.

  3. zi's rating of the film Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story)

    Meh. I tried. Is this the fall of Rome?

  4. Imago Vanitas's rating of the film Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story)

    MTV and musical videoclip culture are undoubtly in the background. Arguably overscored and estheticist. Yet not as banal as one could expect on his political undertones. Plenty of good-looking teenage freedom gestures more or less naively escenographyated, but there is something truly revolutionaire on comunal sex exrperience:

  5. David Sindmark Hörnfeldt's rating of the film Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story)

    Wow, that escalated quickly. In one word: shallow, shallow, shallow. Well made and good looking but without much purpose. It's not even experimental. Though I do really like Marilyn Lima. She reminded me of Adrienne Shelly and I would like to see her in more stuff.

  6. Xénia's rating of the film Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story)

    Les images sont belles, le son aussi.. mais c'est un peu chiant.. on y croit pas vraiment, même la chaleur de l'été ne se fait pas ressentir .. n'est pas Larry Clark qui veut.

  7. Funda Can Çuvalcı's rating of the film Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story)

    Acting and cinematography is nice. The reason why the film has been received as a soft-porn can be the director's focus on the orgies. But still, it can be sensed that the director is a woman. Maybe, if the perspective of the director were stronger and more focused, the film would be deeper and more meaningful.

  8. robbiecsmith's rating of the film Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story)

    3.5 There are weaknesses to this film (I'm uncomfortable with soft porn of teenagers) but overall I commend the writer/director in capturing how inane group dynamic and behaviour can easily spiral into potentially life-changing trauma without a sensationalist plot.

  9. sebastiaen's rating of the film Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story)

    A bit predictable but still somehow believable. It's not a movie with a strong social message and you might not relate to the at-times-sort-of-posh-kids but the acting is quite good and the "uncensored" sex scenes worked for me. Not a bad movie, if you're looking for something light-hearted and think back to your early teenage years, give this film a try. Would give 3.5 stars if I could.

  10. captainfez's rating of the film Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story)

    I am once more reminded that my school life was less creepy-photoshoot-with-boning than others.

  11. msmichel's rating of the film Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story)

    Solid debut feature from director Eva Husson whose intent here may be murky for some but her power to convey beautiful image is very clear. Those getting hung up on the open sexuality here or thinking its a modern safe sex/abstinence p.s.a are severely missing the point. Husson's film is a universal take on teenage detachment and burgeoning sexuality but in a modern context of forced apathy and impersonal technology.

  12. Draughtsman Without Contract's rating of the film Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story)

  13. tealeaves's rating of the film Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story)

    Horrible feeling of emptiness after watching this...maybe that was the point though.

  14. black frank's rating of the film Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story)

  15. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story)

    There's a point in Bang Gang when one character comments on the activities of another as being "profoundly mediocre", which almost sums up the entire film. It's almost like a French extension of the world shown by Larry Clark in Kids (although not nearly as bleak - the sex and debauchery here is more pleasant and elegant, even if it could lead to similar results). Not really gripping viewing though.

  16. imaqua@hotmail.com's rating of the film Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story)

    pretty and french. i think it's a little bit too superficial ? it's so beautiful that the pain feels unreal.

  17. nvmore's rating of the film Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story)

    this was the longest ad for safe sex i've ever seen

  18. tintinmugshot's rating of the film Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story)

    50's Ad about the "danger" of free sex.

  19. Tja's rating of the film Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story)

    Unexceptional in every way and not saved by its frenchness. Youth doing what their instincts dictate. AKA Spring Break at home with Mom and Dad away. Read a good book ....

  20. filmotrope's rating of the film Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story)

    Even if this cynical and moralistic drama is allegedly based on real events, it is really hard to believe that 16-year-old teenagers would engage so openly in those sort of sexual practices, and the narrative is also weakened by an irregular structure and obvious lack of focus. http://www.filmotrope.com

  22. Angus George Alexander Brown's rating of the film Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story)

    There is a lot of sex, yes, but also some plot! The combination of liquid cinematography and electronica soundtrack makes this film gorgeous to behold, particularly in its opening sequence and title crawl.

  23. alimcintyre's rating of the film Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story)

    Teenage shagfest which culminates in the inevitable conclusion. Plenty of eye candy provides an entertaining 98 minutes.
