CC seems to me to be a movie about how to make a marriage renew itself. Not necessarily about remarriage, per se, as in the comedies of old; nor is it a melodrama of contesting tears, though our heroine here remains unnamed and unknown; this is a perpetual state of becoming other, othered, othering, becoming anew. And there’s a kind of insistence, a forcing the issue, that overrides the comedic elements and charges the affect of fun, [hetero-], human sexuality into a danger zone.
