Frances is THE muse of post-college crisis. She embodies the cursing of millenials: to have the artistic temperament but not the talent. At 23, it was funny to be "embarrased of not being a real person yet" - as long as you run away at the pace of modern love, tralala-. But as G.G. puts it, when you hit 27, it stops being charming and interesting. Now I'm 27. Not a feel-good film anymore, but a heavy-hearted one.
As in Cleo 5-7 no love story, no sex. Just youth, irresolution, absolute love, lightness of being. She could be your ideal sister, daughter or girlfriend, she's just Frances Ha, 27. 100% lovable === Comme dans Cleo 5-7, ni sexe, ni amourette. Que la jeunesse, l'irrésolution, l'amour absolu, la légèreté d'être. Elle pourrait être votre sœur, fille ou petite amie idéale, mais c'est Frances Ha, 27ans. Vous allez l'aimer
3.7 Frances Ha captures very well the struggles of quarter-life crisis: that time in your mid to late 20s where a lot of things- friendships,structures,your identity- seem to fall apart a bit and mere potential is no longer enough.I loved the the blend of slice-of-life & vignettes with a tradicional narrative structure depicting Frances' evolution.The B&W is beautiful & brings all the iconic images of NYC to mind.
