Until yesterday I thought I didn't really like Sautet's style. But this is huge. Also, I totally fell in love with Montand's character. Why in the world I never get to meet men like César? Damn you Romy Schneider.
7.5/10, my review: https://wp.me/p1eXom-3hN
"CESAR AND ROSALIE plays up a liberal-minded homeostasis, which archly transcends our insularity concerning gender roles and delivers us from the usual deluge of hokum."
Unfortunately unfinished due to film being pulled from the streaming service it was on...but an idea from now on when you see a friend looking shocked, say "did you swallow your toothbrush?"... let's make it a thing....
Sure Cesar et Rosalie has Romy Schneider and Yves Montand. And yes, they are both great in it. Sure this movie is about how love can make grown-ups crazy and infantile. But the dramatic tension doesn't feel real. Maybe it's just a French thing, and maybe I just don't get it.
