Where does a newcomer to Rozier's art begin in addressing a film like this, a joyous, expansive, weather-drenched, life-affirming work about the void within the human character? Early on, Kareen addresses the audience & a past which the present overwhelms but can never quite discard. Will a boat capsize? A tracking camera, a hand wave, the magic of the horizon. So much food which may or may not be eaten. Masterpiece.
Wonderful, uncomfortable film that's as free-verse as the best work of Jean Eustache or Luc Moullet. That's the synopsis to Rozier's Adieu Philippine above, by the way – try "three young women take a vacation on France's Atlantic coast, where they are soon joined by a socially awkward male work colleague who has a crush on one of them".
