  2. Wee Hunk's rating of the film La belle captive

    I don't exactly want to admit that I saw this film. I had hopes that he could leave behind his nudie films, but then if you saw the cover, you knew what you were getting yourself into.

  3. christophel's rating of the film La belle captive

    Une rêverie fantasmatique, pas désagréable, vite oubliée.

  4. Tibulle85's rating of the film La belle captive

    Un film assez intéressant. Robbe-Grillet évite bien certains écueils de la représentation de structures oniriques en film-live. Mais le film présente des grosses longueurs, notamment dans sa 2e partie qui a eu sur moi des effets soporifiques (le comble pr un film traitant du rêve!). De même, le potentiel érotique du film est désormais complètement désamorcé, 30 ans après sa création (surtout après One room in Rome).

  5. Carlier's rating of the film La belle captive

    Un des meilleurs film d'Alain Robbe-Grillet. Superbe prestation d'acteurs (comme toujours), un double-espace-temps d'une grande beauté. A voir sans plus attendre

  6. lostlevel's rating of the film La belle captive

    It's sort of reminiscent of In the City of Sylvia, David Lynch and the feminine phantoms of Fellini's films. Visually intriguing and I quite enjoyed this one. I'm not entirely sure I got this but can hazard a guess to what it all might mean... perhaps.

  7. msmichel's rating of the film La belle captive

    A bizarre puzzle box of a film that melds the works of Rene Magritte with the narrative maze writing of director Alain Robbe-Grillet with interesting but middling results. Excellent production values with kudos to cinematographer Henri Alekan and the production design of Aime Deude. Though the film winds up getting lost in its own maze, it's an interesting journey getting lost.

  8. Paul Cozighian's rating of the film La belle captive

    Pas mal pour l'envoutement...

  10. tintinmugshot's rating of the film La belle captive

    It's strange but nobody seems to watch Twin Peaks in here. With no doubt of a reason, David Lynch watch it prior, and never said. The same atmosphere, photograph, strange characters, subconsciousness, dialogues. It's a lost masterpiece, ignored. If the critics (or Mr. Lynch) payed a very well tribute to this, believe me: All this people who hated this movie would instantly adore it. It's sad but that's life...

  11. Renton47's rating of the film La belle captive

    A man seems to construct a mystery concerning a feminine submissive for his own entertainment. Or is it the narrator constructing the narrative for another man? At any rate the fantasy eludes them both and they discover they no longer have power over the narrative or its implications. A metaphysical mystery, dreamlike in its gorgeous cinematography and strange aesthetics, the joy of dream infiltration.

  12. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film La belle captive

    I am certain that I will love or hate this someday.

  13. Gerald Singer's rating of the film La belle captive

    A strange melange of arthouse cinema, exploitation and surrealist kitsch. The guy with the bicycle is hilarious.

  14. Christophe's rating of the film La belle captive

    Ciné-Roman ou Roman au ciné pas convaincant mais Robbe-Grillet y croit, il y manque sans doute le cynisme de Godard

  15. Phil Connors's rating of the film La belle captive

    Robbe-Grillet transpose son travail littéraire au cinéma avec un résultat consternant. Véritable Midas inversé, il tranforme la perversité en érotisme de pacotille, l'inventivité formelle en vaine rhétorique dans ce plombant nanar auteuriste.

  16. totochvilli's rating of the film La belle captive

    Une petite pépite française à l'érotisme surréaliste et finement BDSM.

  17. Dobromir Tsolyov's rating of the film La belle captive

    What a beautiful film!! In spite of the bad dialogue and a couple of amateur twists.. this film is awesome. This haunting, obscure story ! The imagery/picture is awesome ! If you love surrealist arts, this film will totally appeal to you. In some moments I was sooo stunned. I wish I could watch it in a theater.

  18. BUSTER TIERNEY's rating of the film La belle captive

    Quelle lourdeur ! Quel maniérisme ! Quelle prétention intellectuelle ! Revoir ce film me confirme que Marguerite Duras, l'autre cinéaste issue du Nouveau Roman, lui est 1000 fois supérieure et intemporelle ! Seuls Daniel Emilkorf et François Chaumette donnent une vraie dimension surréalisante... Vive Buñuel et son humour qui aurait eu la délicatesse de faire passer un émeu ou un panda à l'improviste !

  19. Henri's rating of the film La belle captive

    On prend plaisir à se perdre dans ce remarquable exercice de style surréaliste.

  20. Jeremiah Johnson's rating of the film La belle captive

    Nice imagery. The actresses are gorgeous but the male actors look like trolls.

  21. manufre's rating of the film La belle captive

    Ce n 'est pas inintéressant, j 'ai regardé jusqu' à la fin...Mais Peu être un peu trop surréaliste pour moi.

  24. Mark Wilson's rating of the film La belle captive

    Strains for magic in its over stretched ramblings on a Magritte painting
