Ce que j'ai trouvé glauque, c'est l'incapacité des personnages à prendre du recul sur leur insatisfaction ou leurs insuffisances -par la culture,la réflexion, le retour sur soi : ils sont rivés à leurs souffrances, sans avoir l'étoffe des personnages Dostoïovskiens. A croire qu'il n'y a pour eux que le corps.
A strange off center movie with a poetic sense of randomness. That it is a comedy takes a while to realize. It is disorienting but comes together eventually, meanwhile the trip is inventive, and visually unique with bizarre motifs swirling around. He has an odd sense of where to place his camera. Abstract but emotionally satisfying by the conclusion.
This film is so bad that apparently no one even wants to comment on it. I didn't want to either, and then I saw that no one had. And MUBI has how many subscribers? If I told you the worst part, it would be a "spoiler", and gosh, I wouldn't want to do that. But I don't recommend wasting your time with it, either. It seems that Gustave's world lies somewhere between porn and art, succeeding at neither.
